A group known as the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade has reportedly claimed it is behind the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Late last night, an email was sent to a number of journalists in China, threatening: “You kill one of our clan, we will kill 100 of you as payback.”
It makes a purported threat in the wake of a knife attack in Kinming last week, in which 29 people were killed and over 100 injured.
However, officials in Malaysia have cautioned the email could be a hoax designed to increase ethnic tensions in China.
“There is no sound or credible grounds to justify their claims,” said Malaysia’s acting Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin, adding that the email did not explain what had happened to the plane.
