Default What was on-board Flight MH370 when it disappeared?

I can understand not releasing certain information if it could hamper
an investigation.

But what earthly reason could there be for not releasing the cargo
information, unless it was something that should not have been there?

What was on-board Flight MH370 when it disappeared? Mystery deepens
over contents of missing plane's cargo

It has now emerged the Malaysia Airlines plane was loaded with items
which have not been made clear on the publicly-released manifest

The mystery has deepened over the exact contents of the cargo on-board
Flight MH370 when it disappeared eight weeks ago.

It has now emerged the Malaysia Airlines plane was loaded with items
which have not been made clear on the publicly-released manifest.
It is known the aircraft was carrying 4.566 tonnes of mangosteens, an
exotic fruit.

It also had a separate consignment which contained 200kg of lithium
batteries.

However, the separate consignment totalled 2.453 tonnes. And it has
not been revealed what made up the rest of that weight.

As reported by Mail Online, a spokesman for the company which shipped
the batteries said he could not reveal what made up the remaining
cargo.

Speaking to The Star newspaper in Malaysia, he said: 'I cannot reveal
more because of the ongoing investigations. We have been told by our
legal advisers not to talk about it.'

The company that manufactured the batteries has not even been named.
Malaysia Airlines said that 'radio accessories and chargers' made up
the rest of the manifest. This is despite no reference to this being
made when the manifest was released publicly recently.

There has been previous speculation that the plane crashed following a
fire involving the batteries.

It was eight weeks ago last night that Flight MH370 completely
disappeared. It was carrying 239 passengers and crew members.
Despite a multi-national search involving some of the most
sophisticated technology in the world, no trace of the plane has been
found.
