A giant screen shows the number of hours since Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing, in Beijing.

Malaysia Airlines has denied claims that some families of passengers were flown to India instead of Malaysia.

In a statement issued at 12.45am today, it said:

"Malaysia Airlines wishes to clarify the claims that some families of the passengers were flown to India instead of Malaysia. This is not true."

Malaysia Airlines flies directly from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur without a transit. There is also no Malaysia Airlines direct flight from Hong Kong to Mumbai or any part of India."

The welfare of both the crew and passenger’s families remain our focus. At the same time, the security and safety of our passengers is of the utmost importance to us."
