The airline has offered family members 5-thousand U.S. dollars for each passenger aboard Flight 370 and additional payments as the search continues.
This follows the Malaysian Prime Minister's announcement the day before, that the ill fated flight came down somewhere in the remote southern Indian Ocean, with no chance of anyone survived.
Despair and rage exploded among relatives of the Chinese passengers on board that plane in Beijing after receiving the news many had feared, but didn't want to believe.
"I want to tell the journaliststhe information they just sent it is not true "
In a damning statement given to the media, the families accused Malaysia Airlines and the Malaysian government and military of being "the real executioners who killed" the missing jet passengers.
They said the shameless behavior misguided and delayed rescue actions, wasting a large quantity of human resources and materials and lost valuable time for the rescue effort.
The jet vanished on March 8th with 239 people on board after it took off from Kuala Lampur en route to Beijing.
