Information just made available by China Airlines has indicated that Beijing International Airport received a terror threat just a few days before the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 went missing.
The identity of the terrorist is still unknown but he declared an affiliation with the East Turkestan Liberation Organisation.
The threat was made on 4th March by phone, and warned that a terror strike would shortly take place at the airport. The caller initially spoke in French, but then changed to Mandarin when airport staff failed to comprehend what he was saying.
The authorities were informed immediately after the call was received; however investigators have said that, so far, there is still insufficient evidence to link the missing plane’s disappearance with terrorism.
