外文标题：Passport theft adds to mystery of missing Malaysia Airlines jet
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia: Investigators trying to find out what happened to a Malaysia Airlines jet that disappeared en route to Beijing on Saturday morning were examining the usual causes of plane crashes: mechanical failure, pilot error, bad weather. But the discovery that two of the passengers were carrying stolen passports also raised the unsettling possibility of foul play.
By early Sunday morning, there was little to go on: no wreckage of the jet, a Boeing 777-200 with 239 people aboard, and other than oil slicks on the surface of the Gulf of Thailand that may have been from a crash, no clue that an accident had even taken place. The airline said the plane, which departed from Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, had recently passed inspection, and Malaysia's deputy minister of transport, Aziz bin Kaprawi, said the authorities had not received any distress signals from the aircraft. The plane was flying at 35,000 feet with no reports of threatening weather when it last made contact.
After officials in Rome and Vienna confirmed that the names of an Italian and an Austrian on the manifest of the missing flight matched the names on two passports reported stolen in Thailand, officials emphasized that the investigation was in its earliest stages and that they were considering all possibilities, including terrorism.
截止周日凌晨，调查几乎没有任何进展：并未发现载着239人的波音777-200飞机的遗骸，只是在泰国海湾表面发现了或许来自坠机的油迹，并无任何线索表明发生了事故。马航表示这架从首都吉隆坡起飞的飞机最近通过了检查。马来西亚交通部副部长Aziz bin Kaprawi表示当局并未收到来自该飞机的任何呼救信号。最后一次联系时，飞机正在35000英尺高度飞行，当时并无恶劣天气的报道。
The World is curious to know the facts.

doesn't seems a hijack otherwise there would have been a demand made by terrorist and if they wanted to crash they would have told the whole world that they are going to crash

STRANGE, INSPITE OF SUCH ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, STILL WHEREABOUTS OF THE PLANE NOT FOUND!!
Really Very Very bad
The mystery of stollen passports having been used by two passengers who boarded the plane is very astonishing. If the plane didn't crash land at sea, where has it vanished? Is there any black hole in the region?

Possibility is there of terror foul play.Hope we get to the depth of matter soon.
Let us hope there is nothing wrong with the plane. Few things do not have explanation 1. How can somebody check with a stolen passport and that too two of them. 2. Five passengers did not board the flight although they checked in their baggage.3. In the earlier report the plane suddenly disappeared from an altitude of 33,000 feet . Hope this mystery ends at the earliest and all is well.
Whether satellite pictures of the entire China- Vietnam-Malaysia area can't throw any clues. No information on such efforts.
Hope this mystery gets clears soon
Two passengers managing to fly on stolen passport despite all the security checks. This is a serious error on the part of airport authority.
The question is if Passports were stolen or sold by the holders to suspected/possible hijackers.This had been noticed in the past,when europeans are exhausted with funds enjoying long holidays they sell their passports and declare lost.The get emergency passports from their respective consulates without any fuss.
Is this a full proof terror attack?
The plane has been taken by aliens!

A thorough investigation should be done to reveal actual cause of this incident.
Hope they find some info on this flight soon!
Thorough investigations needed .......... Why so lax in security.......
