Malaysia on Sunday launched a terror probe into the disappearance of a passenger jet carrying 239 people, investigating suspect passengers who boarded with stolen passports, as relatives begged for news of their loved ones.A total of 40 ships and 22 aircraft from an array of countries including China and the US are now involved in the hunt across the two areas, officials said.After it emerged that two people boarded the flight with stolen European passports, Malaysia's transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein said he was looking at four suspect passengers in all.He declined to offer details, saying authorities were examining "the entire manifest", but confirmed the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was dispatching personnel to Malaysia. A Malaysian civil aviation official said authorities still so far believe only two passengers had used stolen passports and were examining CCTV footage of them.China Southern, which has a code-share agreement with MAS, listed one Italian and one Austrian among its ticketed passengers on the flight.Meanwhile, a Chinese national whose passport number was listed on the manifest did not board the plane and was still in China, China's state media reported, adding the passport was never stolen. The flight carried 227 passengers and 12 crew.
