Xinhua also reported that no evidence has been found linking the 153 Chinese passengers aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight to terror or hijacking, citing Beijing's envoy in Kuala Lumpur.

China's ambassador to Malaysia Huang Huikang said background checks on all passengers from the Chinese mainland on board missing flight MH370 did not find any evidence that they were linked to a hijacking or terrorist attack on the jet, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
