The Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade sent an email to a journalist on Sunday which made the claim by stating the following:

You kill one of our clan, we will kill 100 of you as pay back.

However, the message gave no details about the flight’s disappearance. Additionally, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysia’s acting transportation minister, revealed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport that he doubted the claim is legitimate on Monday. He specifically said that there is no sound or credible grounds to justify their claims.

Others believe the claim may be a hoax designed to increase ethnic tensions between Han Chinese and Uighurs in the wake of a March 1 knife attack in Kunming which resulted in the death of 29 people and the injury of approximately 140 others.

It is practically impossible to trace the email as it was transported via Hushmail which is an anonymous, encrypted platform.
