KUALA LUMPUR - A report published by British tabloid the Daily Mail on Sunday is untrue and any information contained within was not obtained from Malaysian police.

"I can confirm that I do not think it came from the police, and how the Daily Mail got it, you have to ask them," said acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

"In regards to information being revealed outside the press conference or speculation, diagrams in Google or anything else on the Internet, I cannot confirm or discount those sources.

I can only base it on what I've informed you during my press conferences. If there is anything, I will clarify, there is no big deal," he reiterated during the daily MH370 press conference at the Putra World Trade Centre.

In a report Sunday, the tabloid quoted a "source close to the pilot's family" saying that the pilot of the missing flight, Capt Zaharie Ahmad Shah, was in emotional turmoil over the break-up of his marriage.

The daughter of Capt Zaharie has since said she would not forgive British tabloid the Daily Mail for "making up stories" and implying her father could be responsible for the missing flight.
