    A tenacious Brit convinced that missing flight MH370 is in the Cambodian jungle says he will resume his search - even though a previous attempt nearly proved deadly. Ian Wilson believes he spotted the Malaysia Airlines plane when looking at Google Maps. He travelled to the area with brother Jack last year - and Jack was lucky to survive a sudden fall after ground gave way underneath him. Despite this Ian is keen to return to the mountainous terrain... However the Aviation Safety Network (ASN) is certain that the aircraft was captured mid-flight. Evidence is mounting that the crash, which...

    Mike Exner, a prominent member of the Independent Group, has studied the radar data extensively. He believes that during the turn, the airplane climbed up to 40,000 feet, which was close to its limit. Exner believes the reason for the climb was to accelerate the effects of depressurizing the airplane, causing the rapid incapacitation and death of everyone in the cabin. The cockpit, by contrast, was equipped with four pressurized-oxygen masks linked to hours of supply. Zaharie was often lonely and sad. His wife had moved out, and was living in the family’s second house. By his own admission to...

Deutsche Bank's work for 1MDB included helping to raise $1.2 billion in 2014 as concerns about the fund's management and financials had begun to circulate, the newspaper said, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter....

    Greedy killer monkeys were found to be catching and gobbling up large rats in Malaysia. Shocked scientists uncovered the rat-catching macaques on palm oil plantations – and say the hungry predators could be used as pest control. The southern pig-tailed macaques were typically thought to chow down on fruit. They would also hunt for meaty prey sometimes, but generally only small lizards and birds. Now scientists have confirmed that these monkeys are also regularly snatching and devouring large rats.

    A British pedophile who sexually abused nearly 200 Malaysian babies and children before he was given 22 life sentences three years ago was killed in prison Sunday, authorities said. Richard Huckle, 33, was fatally stabbed with a makeshift knife at Full Sutton Prison in York, England, according to multiple local news outlets.

The freelance photographer and former schoolteacher used his position to gain access to numerous vulnerable children during trips to Malaysia. He was arrested in 2014 after investigators found 20,000...

    While congratulating the council for the pretty drawing, Facebook user Hamir Habeed Mohd questioned the relevance of the drawing with Taiping. “Is the character a Taiping born? The plane landed in Taiping? The woman married a local or died there? Don’t tell me just because she refilled her petrol here it became a historical matter?” he asked. He further questioned why a local figure was not highlighted instead. “There are many other historical matters than could have been highlighted.” Sharing the same sentiment, another user by the name of Simon Chin questioned the reasoning behind the mural of Earhart when...
