Relatives of passengers on the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have grown increasingly frustrated over the lack of progress in the search.
Two Chinese relatives were manhandled and thrown out of the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. They held up a banner saying "Truth" and started shouting. They were then dragged away and locked inside a room. Police prevented media from speaking to them.
A group of relatives of Chinese passengers in Beijing said they decided to begin a hunger strike to express their anger over the handling of the investigation.
