BEIJING (AP) — Commentary in China’s state-run media is urging people to react “rationally” to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, after days of protests by passengers’ relatives who say Malaysia has mishandled the incident.

Many Chinese family members of passengers have expressed extreme skepticism over accounts by the Malaysian government. They maintain Malaysian officials are not telling all they know about the plane’s disappearance March 8 and have expressed frustration that they concluded it went down in the Indian Ocean without any physical evidence.

The commentary in the China Daily says “we should not let anger prevail over facts and rationality.”

“No matter how distressed we are … it is certain that flight MH370 crashed in the Indian Ocean and no one on board survived,” the comments say.
