As of today, Interpol does not believe that terrorism is involved in the missing Malaysia Flight 370. No sign of terrorist activity has been reported and Interpol has not found anything to point in that direction. Both individuals, who were traveling with stolen passports have been identified.
“The more information we get, the more we’re inclined to conclude that it was not a terrorist incident” Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said at a news conference in Lyon, France.
Among the evidence pointing in that direction, he said: news from Malaysian authorities that one of two people said to be traveling on stolen passports, an Iranian, was trying to travel to his mother in Germany.
The two individuals using stolen passports to board the missing Malaysia Airline flight were Iranians seeking asylum in Europe. The men were identified as Pouri Nourmohammadi, 19, and Delavar Seyedmohammaderza, 29. Both were identified by Interpol.
Interpol secretary general Ronald K. Noble identified the men. Noble said that the two men had traveled to Malaysia from Tehran using Iranian passports, but had secured stolen Italian and Austrian passports in Kuala Lumpur for their planned journey to Beijing and Amsterdam, for which both had tickets and planned to travel together.
