A series of shocking reports came to light over the last few days about the possible fate of Malaysian Airlines MH370 and its 239 passengers and crew that disappeared on March 8, 2014.

Among these reports was the claim that it was shot out of the sky accidentally while authorities were trying to prevent a copycat 9/11 attack. This report suggested that authorities feared the plane was on its way back to Kuala Lumpur to target the iconic Petronas Towers, one of the world’s tallest buildings.

Britain’s Daily Star tabloid is among the newspapers suggesting that Malaysia feared two Iranian terrorists were aboard the plane. The paper reminded readers of a previous statement (see video below) from Malaysian security officials in the wake of the plane crash:

The Star‘s report suggests that, at the time, Malaysia feared the worst and sent warning shots over the plane. One accidentally hit the craft, sending it plummeting into the Andaman Sea. The newspaper attributes this claim to investigator Noel O’Gara

Renewed international interest in the story came after five pieces of debris from the plane washed up on beaches of Madagascar earlier this month.

Elsewhere, an independent group set up to investigate the crash believes the pilot, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, was behind the plane’s disappearance. One of its members posted a blog to the internet in which he says it is likely the pilot tried to “deceive radar operators into believing that the aircraft had an intention to land.”
