Desperate relatives of Chinese passengers aboard flight MH370 threatened to go on hunger strike Tuesday as they demanded answers about the missing aircraft from Malaysian officials.
Two-thirds of the passengers on the flight, which had 239 people on board, were Chinese.
Outside the meeting room, a woman clutching a placard reading “Respect life. Give us back our families” told reporters that the relatives were going on hunger strike.
She declined to say how many were doing so, or give her name.
Wen also said some of the relatives had stopped going to the meetings, given how long they had been waiting for information.
Beijing has been critical of Malaysia?s sharing of information, with state media and China’s huge army of netizens in expressing anger at the handling of the incident by Kuala Lumpur.
