"The fact that the two men appeared to have an identical set of legs in the photos caused an outrage on social media, with people demanding answers about what seemed to be Photoshopped pictures," states the report.

According to Daily Mail, Malaysian police admitted that the 'misleading' photos were the result of an accident that occurred when the images were placed on top of each other while they were being photocopied.

A spokesperson said that it was not "done with malice or to mislead."

The two men in the photos, who were believed to be seeking asylum from Iran, have been identified as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 19, and Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, 29.

The disappearance of the Malaysia flight MH370 continues to remain a mystery even though Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced in a press conference on 24 March that the missing plane had crashed in a remote part of the Indian Ocean.
