[Full title] Eleven terrorists with links to Al Qaeda have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the disappearance of MH370

- Suspects were arrested in the capital Kuala Lumpur and the state of Kedah

- Said to members of violent new terror group said to be planning attacks

- Interrogations came after demands from agencies including FBI and MI6

- Manifest revealed presence of consignment but did not reveal its contents

- Airline has admitted 200kg of lithium batteries was among the items

- It refused to say what else, citing 'legal reason' related to 'ongoing' probe

The interrogations come after international investigators, including the FBI and MI6, asked for the militants, whose ages range from 22 to 55 and include students, odd-job workers, a young widow and business professionals, to be questioned intensively about Flight MH370.

The closures come after rescuers abandoned their fruitless air search for the missing jet, which had focused on a remote area of the Indian Ocean off Australia's west coast.

The mystery was sparked by a spokesman for the company that shipped the batteries telling a Malaysian newspaper that he would not reveal what the remaining 2.253 tonnes of cargo were.

'I cannot reveal more because of the ongoing investigations,' the spokesman told The Star newspaper. 'We have been told by our legal advisers not to talk about it.'

The spokesman said he could not even name the company which manufactured the batteries, insisting that the matter was confidential.

Questioned about the fact that a mystery cargo was not stated in the manifest, Malaysian Airlines told the paper that the rest of the consignment was 'radio accessories and chargers.'

A statement from the airline said that the freight not specified had been 'declared as radio accessories', despite there being

I’ve been leaning towards, ‘that plane ain’t missin’ - it’s been stolen,’ since Minute One. The search and rescue has been a dog & pony show cover-up. The powers that be know that plane was stolen. No doubt in my Military Mind.

The passengers are dead, of course, (RIP, and I hope it was quick) but their bodies and the plane are NOT at the bottom of the ocean.

We are in for SO much trouble. Not sure who or what can save us after these past 6 years...

I have a dumb, as usual, question.

What is supposed to be the significance of the lithium batteries?

That the battery casings were holding Gold shipment China was expecting. Piracy that our Seals caught onto in Feb.

A ton of gold ‘diverted’ to Iran.

Lithium batteries (Li-ion) run cameras, phones and laptops ....

And they can overheat keeping the latest Boeing A/C passenger liner grounded.

“That the battery casings were holding Gold shipment China was expecting. Piracy that our Seals caught onto in Feb.”

Do you have a source?

Also, if it was gold smuggling, why did the terrorists crash the plane?

Don’t forget the possibility of targeted use of Obamadrones from the US Base in Diago Garcia - - - .

BTW, do you think ex-van driver Tommy Vietor might know?

A mystery surrounding the cargo being carried by the missing Malaysian Airlines plane emerged on Friday when it was discovered that it had been loaded with items not specified on the manifest.

The aircraft was carrying 4.566 tonnes of mangosteens - an exotic fruit - and a shipment of lithium batteries, which were part of a separate consignment. The batteries weighed 200kg, but that separate consignment totalled 2.453 tonnes. So what was being carried to make up the 2.253 tonnes in that separate shipment?

The mystery was sparked by a spokesman for the company that shipped the batteries telling a Malaysian newspaper that he would not reveal what the remaining 2.253 tonnes of cargo were.

‘I cannot reveal more because of the ongoing investigations,’ the spokesman told The Star newspaper. ‘We have been told by our legal advisers not to talk about it.’

The spokesman said he could not even name the company which manufactured the batteries, insisting that the matter was confidential. Questioned about the fact that a mystery cargo was not stated in the manifest, Malaysian Airlines told the paper that the rest of the consignment was ‘radio accessories and chargers.’

A statement from the airline said that the freight not specified had been ‘declared as radio accessories’, despite there being no reference to this in the manifest released publicly last Thursday.

What the manifest does say is that NNR Global shipped 133 pieces of one item weighing 1.99 tonnes and 67 pieces of another item weighing 463kg for a total ‘consolidated weight’ of 2.453 tonnes.

Just how many lithium batteries had been loaded, or their weight, are not specified in the manifest, although Malaysian Airlines boss Ahmad Yahya told a media conference in Kuala Lumpur on March 24 that the batteries weighed a total of 200kg.

What the manifest does say, in respect of the lithium batteries, is that ‘the package must be handled with care and that a flammability hazard exists if the package is damaged. ‘Special procedures must be followed in the event the package is damaged, to include inspection and repacking if necessary.’

There has been earlier speculation that a fire involving the batteries might have been the cause of the aircraft’s fate. According to The Star, shippers NNR Global are located at an air freight forwarding warehouse located less than 100 yards from the Penang International Airport.

‘The complex is guarded by the police and only those with passes are allowed entry,’ the newspaper said, following its investigation into the unspecified cargo. A consolidated shipment combines several individual consignments to make up a full container load.

At the port of destination, the consolidated shipment is separated back into individual consignments for delivery to their respective consignees.

The lithium batteries and the other mystery items that are said to be radio parts were addressed to NNR Global Logistics in Beijing, but a company named JHJ International Transportation Co.Ltd of Beijing was to collect the cargo on its behalf.

Rotten mangosteens caused gases of global warming which blew up air liner.

Climate changists in other news call for a ban on fruit growers.

Um, you know you can just drive a ton of gold from China to Iran and nobody would stop the Chinese or the Iranians if it was their deal. I agree there is a rat here, that’s not it.

From the article:

“Badat, who spoke via video link and is in hiding in the UK, told the New York court the Malaysian plot was being masterminded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the principal architect of 9/11.”

What? Maybe 0b0z0 let his buddy out on furlough or good behavior from Gitmo?

It seems this plane ain’t with the fishes!

The possibility that the plane was diverted by militants is still high on the list and international investigators have asked for a comprehensive report on this new terror group,’ the officer said.

Jeez, ya think it could be in Iran or Pock-ee-ston ? But no, the media tells us it crashed in the ocean and we're crazy because we want to see the debris. Like you said it "ain't with the fishes."

My bet is still on a hijack/landing scenario. The inability to find it smells of clandestine government involvement. It won't be a mystery forever.

O yes it will be. The authorities really do not wish you to know. That's why when In called in after spotting it parked behind a chop shop in Pacoima, they ignored me.

Yo, Ese, I can get a fortune for those hydraulics!
