Prayers for the people on board the Malaysia airlines jet, missing for 18 days. Officials in Kuala Lumpur are now sure the jet crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, thousands of kilometres off course. These Filipinos are celebrating the final peace agreement between the government and the Muslim rebel group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. But they also had time to spare a thought for the passengers on flight MH370. Most of them were Chinese. (SOUNDBITE) (Filipino) BANGSAMORO NATIONAL MOVEMENT FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT SPOKESPERSON AGAKHAN SHARIEF SAYING: "We pray and we are one with Prime Minister Razak. We pray to Allah for the victims and their families. We sympathise with them." The reasons for the loss of the Beijing bound flight remain a mystery. The aircraft vanished about one hour after taking off from the Malaysian capital. China has asked to see the satellite data, which shows the plane ended its journey in the southern Indian Ocean. Deputy Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui has arrived in Malaysia to discuss the search. He is meeting Prime Minister Najib Razak and Malaysia's acting transport minister. In Beijing, angry relatives of the passengers criticise Kuala Lumpur for the way it has handled the investigation. (SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE FAMILIES OFF CHINESE PASSENGERS ABOARD MISSING PLANE, STEVE WANG, SAYING: "We feel utter disappointment with the attitude in which Malaysia Airlines has handled the reasonable demands of the family members. At the same time we feel furious at the way that Malaysia Airlines has repeatedly deceived everyone in the world. We hope that the world will expose the lies of Malaysia Airlines, and we also hope that Malaysia Airlines will be able to carry out the promises (they've made)." Though there have been several sightings of debris, none have yet been linked to the plane. Many of these relatives refuse to accept their loved ones have died and they will not give up hope until wreckage is found.
