Police: Malaysian Airlines Pilot Deleted Files

Posted: Updated:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Investigators are trying to restore files deleted last month from the home flight simulator of the pilot aboard the missing Malaysian plane to see if they shed any light on the disappearance, Malaysia's defense minister said Wednesday.

Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference that the pilot is considered innocent until proven guilty of any wrongdoing. He said members of Zaharie's family are cooperating in the investigation.

Files containing records of the simulations carried out on the program were deleted on Feb. 3, Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu told the news conference.

Malaysian Airlines flight 370 with 239 people aboard went missing March 8 on a night flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Malaysian authorities have not ruled out any possible explanations, but have said the evidence so far suggests the flight was deliberately tuurned back across Malaysia to the Strait of Malacca. They are unsure what happened next.
