DCA contradicts Hisham: Only 2 on missing flight with false passports
The Department of Civil Aviation clarifies that only two passengers have flown on false passports on the missing MAS flight MH370, not four as previously reported.
The department's director-general Azharuddin Abdul Rahman says they have the CCTV recordings of the passengers from check-in to departure point and the footage is being used to investigate the matter.
