A protest again erupts in Beijing, as families of some of the Chinese passengers aboard missing flight MH370 vent their anger and frustration. These protesters believe officials in Kuala Lumpur have mishandled the search for the Malaysia airlines jet, which disappeared on March 8th. Relatives are demanding to see proof that the plane its 239 passengers and crew crashed into the Indian Ocean. (SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) FAMILY MEMBER STEVE WANG SAYING: "This kind of attitude is very irresponsible because they don't have any direct evidence. (Their conclusion) is only based on mathematical (analysis) and they used an uncertain mathematical model. Then they come to the conclusion that our relatives are all gone. This is a very irresponsible kind of attitude. Actually, it just proves that they are really irresponsible. After all, this mathematical model does not have real data taken from tracing the plane's path. So now this proves how shameless the Malaysia government really is. We now hope that they can take back their irresponsible, so-called announcement." Malaysia's transport minister met some families of the missing passengers, staying in a hotel outside the capital. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MALAYSIAN ACTING TRANSPORT MINISTER, HISHAMMUDDIN HUSSEIN, SAYING: "Miracles do happen, remote or otherwise. That is the hope that the family members want me to convey, not only to the Malaysian government, MAS - but to the world at large. And if it means our prayers, that's not a very difficult request, is it?" The families took small comfort in his words. (SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Malaysia) COUSIN OF MISSING MH370 PASSENGER MOHAMAD SHARIL BIN SHAARI, MOHD RUZAN ZAMANI, SAYING: "Us families of the passengers, we don't know whether they are alive or dead. But we're still hoping they're alive because we still haven't seen any evidence." The search planes returned to an air force base near Perth on Saturday at the end of another long day...still no closer to knowing what happened to them.
