Relatives of the passengers killed on board missing flight MH370 today staged furious protests after receiving the news that there were no survivors on board the Malaysian Airlines plane.
Chinese family members tried to storm the Malaysian embassy in Beijing as they expressed their fury at what they see as the bungled investigation into the flight's whereabouts.
The chief executive of Malaysia Airlines today refused to say whether or not he would resign in the wake of the failure to find the flight, one day after a text was sent to the passengers' families informing them that the plane was almost certainly lost..
They chanted slogans including 'Return our relatives' and 'The Malaysian government are murderers', while fights broke out as security guards tried to stop the demonstrators from talking to reporters.
Some protesters threw water bottles at the building and tried to storm the embassy as they demanded a meeting with the Malaysian ambassador.
They held signs that said 'MH370, Don't let us wait too long!' and '1.3 billion people are waiting to greet the plane'.
The grieving relatives also wore matching T-shirts that read: 'Best of luck to MH370, return home safely.'...see more pics after cut....
