ROME, March 9 International police agency
Interpol said at least two passports recorded as lost or stolen
in its database were used by passengers on board a missing
Malaysia Airlines flight, and said it was "examining additional
suspect passports" on Sunday.
Interpol said no checks of its database had been made by any
country on an Austrian and an Italian passport between the time
that they were stolen and the departure of the flight.
"Whilst it is too soon to speculate about any connection
between these stolen passports and the missing plane, it is
clearly of great concern that any passenger was able to board an
international flight using a stolen passport listed in
Interpol's databases," Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble
said in a statement.
