A father mourns - Hamid Ramlan, a 56-year-old policeman living in the capital Kuala Lumpur, tells AFP that his daughter, 34, and son in law, 24, were on the flight.
"My wife is crying. Everyone is sad. My house has become a place of mourning. This is Allah's will. We have to accept it. But we will from tonight hold special prayers for Allah's help. I want to see my daughter and her husband who were on the flight to Beijing for a holiday," he says.
"There was no premonition that something bad will happen. I drove them to the airport. We hugged and my daughter was so happy to go on the trip. Being a policeman over 33 years, this is my worst day," he adds.
