Arakan

The land that is known as Arakan by the foreigners is called Rakhaing-pray by its own people, Rakhaing-thar (Arakanese) who were titled this name in honour of preservation on their national heritage and ethics or morality.

"We can't wait, we just can't wait anymore," an emotional mother surnamed Xu wailed in Mandarin repeatedly, demanding to know the whereabouts of her son.

According to The Straits Times, several emotional family members of the missing Chinese passengers on MH370 stormed into the media conference room at Sama-Sama Hotel near Kuala Lumpur International Airport on yesterday (Mar 19), ahead of a regular press briefing scheduled to begin at 5.30pm.

It has been almost two weeks since the Malaysian Airlines flight lost contact with ground on Mar 8, and investigators are still unable to give a definite answer due to the lack of conclusive evidence.

Claiming to represent some 20 family members of the missing passengers on board MH370, Madam Xu said all of them were not satisfied with the Malaysian government's search and rescue capabilities.

She said:
"We were told that they are searching, we are told the same thing everyday.

"They have searched the Chinese territorial waters, they have even gone to the Andaman Sea, but where has the plane gone?"

Police intervened to stop the commotion shortly after.

The Chinese family members were locked in a small media secretariat room just next to the press briefing room, as the press conference proceeded.

They were then escorted out of the room through different doors, sparking a media scrum as photographers and videographers scrambled to get footage of the family members.
