  1. Concerns over Passport Theft as Search Continues for Flight MH370

    Fears of foul play are growing as, more than 24 hours after its disappearance, the search continues for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. Suspicions have been raised by the realization that two passengers may have been traveling on stolen passports belonging to an Italian and Austrian who, though listed on the flight’s manifest, were not on-board. As families anxiously await news, the only clue is a 12-mile oil slick on the surface of the Gulf of Thailand. Since there were three Americans among the 227 passengers, the FBI has joined the multinational investigation team.
