Malaysia's airports are to review all air travel security protocols following discovery that two passengers on board the Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight had used stolen passports, The Star reports. In a report in The Jakarta Post, Thai police said Sunday they were investigating a "passport ring" as details emerged of bookings made in Thailand with stolen European passports for the vanished Malaysia Airlines flight. According to a report in China Daily, officials investigating the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines jetliner suspect it may have disintegrated in mid-flight, a senior source said on Sunday, as Vietnam reported a possible sighting of wreckage from the plane. International police agency Interpol said that its computer systems had contained information on the theft of two passports that were used to board an ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight — but no national authorities had checked the database, marking a loophole in international aviation security, says a report in the Philippine Daily Inquirer. South Korea's largest group of doctors said Sunday it would go ahead with a scheduled one-day strike Monday to protest the government’s plan to introduce telemedicine and for-profit subsidiaries of hospitals.
