Malaysia's Anwar accuses government of MH370 cover-up
Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim accused the government of hiding information on missing flight MH370, telling Britain's Daily Telegraph that the country's radar system would have detected any change of course.
Anwar, who recently had his acquittal on sodomy charges overturned in what he claims is a political smear, said he was "baffled" why the sophisticated Marconi radar system that he authorised as finance minister in 1994 had failed to immediately detect the plane's deviation.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 went missing in the early hours of March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, carrying 239 people on board.
