The lack of progress has angered and frustrated families, who have accused Malaysian officials of withholding information.

Some family members staged a protest at the hotel where media covering the search are staying.

“We have been here for 10 days, no single piece of information,” one woman said. “We need media from the entire world (to) help us find our lost families, and find the MH370 plane.”

Malaysian authorities appeared to hustle the women away.

In a statement, Hishammuddin said Malaysian authorities “regret the scenes at this afternoon’s press conference.”

“One can only imagine the anguish they are going through,” he said of the families. “Malaysia is doing everything in its power to find MH370 and hopefully bring some degree of closure for those whose family members are missing.”
