All Passengers Cleared in 370's Disappearance

Posted: Updated:


(CNN) -- Investigators have cleared all passengers on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 of any role in hijacking or sabotage or of having personal or psychological issues that could have played a role in the plane's disappearance, the Inspector General of Police, Khalid Abu Bakar, said Wednesday.

The investigation into what happened is charging ahead on two fronts: new high-tech tools and old-fashioned police work.


While searchers scanned the ocean surface for a 26th day Wednesday with planes and ships, the possibility that something sinister may have happened hasn't been discounted.

Malaysian police said Wednesday they have interviewed about 170 people, and will continue questioning families and those who had access to the plane. Officials have always said they were looking at four possibilities: hijacking, sabotage, personal problems and psychological issues.

A Malaysian government source told CNN on Monday that the airliner's turn off course is being considered a "criminal act," either by one of the pilots or someone else.

But a senior Malaysian government official told CNN last week that authorities have found nothing in days of investigating the two pilots that leads them to any motive, be it political, suicidal or extremist.
