An independent investigative report released Monday offered no definitive answers about what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but suggested that a third party may have played a role in its disappearance more than four years ago.
Questions remain over why it took hours for authorities to raise the alarm, and why they spent eight days looking in the wrong spot after the Boeing 777 disappeared on its way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014.

For Jennifer Chong, whose husband Tan was on board the flight, she said: "To me, it is a helpless day as doors are shut". It says all the evidence points to a an incontrovertible conclusion - that it was under manual control, and that it was deliberately flown out into the Indian Ocean. It is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, hundreds of miles away from its scheduled route.
Theories range from mechanical error or a remote-controlled crash, to more freakish explanations like alien abduction and a Russian plot.
