Crowds protest outside Malaysian Embassy in Beijing following MH370 announcement Published: 2014-3-25 19:24:04

Relatives of passengers on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 hold banners as they march toward the Malaysian Embassy in Beijing on March 25, where they demand more information from officials about their disappeared loved ones. Some of the signs read, “Don’t make us wait too long, MH 370,” “Husband, please come back home soon. Our child and I need you,” and “We are waiting for you and will not give up.” Hundreds gathered at the embassy in anger demanding a clear explanation as to how the flight "ended" in the southern Indian Ocean following last night’s announcement made by Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.
