more about sans-serif; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>”Return our relatives, visit this site ” around 200 family members cried on Tuesday at the gates of the Beijing mission, which was protected by a row of uniformed police and plain clothes security.

The protest came hours after Malaysia’s Prime Minister announced that the plane crashed in the Indian Ocean after vanishing from civilian radar screens on March 8.

The protestors have accused the Malaysian government over the lack of physical evidence to support the Prime Minister Najib Razak’s somber announcement.

Families accused Malaysian authorities of concealing information, cheating the families and wasting valuable time during the search.

All 239 people on board were presumed dead, airline officials said. Around two thirds of those were Chinese.


“My son, my son, return my son!” screamed the 63-year-old, as relatives behind him chanted slogans, raising their right fists.

Behind him others bowed their heads and sobbed.

Scuffles broke out when uniformed security personnel attempted to block some of the relatives from reaching reporters, who were being kept in a designated area. One woman was taken away on a stretcher.

Paramilitary police with riot shields assembled nearby, out of view of the protesters.

Search parties will continue the search for debris with sophisticated devices.

However, bad weather had grounded the Chinese and US military at Perth airport on Tuesday.
