The families of those aboard Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 react with grief and anguish after they were told the missing plane crashed in the Indian Ocean.
Malaysia said on Monday that missing jetliner MH370 had crashed into the Indian Ocean, an announcement that was greeted with hysteria by Chinese relatives of those on board and a demand by China that Kuala Lumpur share all the evidence it had on the incident.
A text message sent to relatives ahead of Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak's announcement said that "we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived".
