MH 370 Mystery Deepens Highly Inflammable Lithium Batteries In Plane Cargo Reignite Fire Speculation

 international news in english

Four days after denying it, Malaysian officials have at last confirmed that a consignment of highly inflammable lithium-ion batteries was in the cargo hold of the missing flight MH370.

 

The admission by CEO re-ignited the speculation that a fire may have caused the disappearance of the plane. Meanwhile, CEO of Malaysian Airlines Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said that the authorities were investigating the cargo, but did not regard the batteries as hazardous.

 

“These are not regarded as dangerous goods,” Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, “and were packed as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.” He insisted they were checked several times to ensure they complied with the guidelines. ‘Airlines do that all the time, it is not just Malaysia Airlines. These goods are being flown by many airlines as cargo anyway, (which) is based on ICAO’s ruling,’ he added.
