Authorities identified the two passengers using stolen passports as Iranian men who were seeking asylum in Europe. Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said in a statement on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, 'that these two individuals were probably not terrorists.'

Interpol was able to confirm through Iranian officials that the two men using the stolen passports as Seyed Mohammed Reza Delavar, aged 29 and Pouria Nourmohammadi, aged 18. Both men used their Iranian passports to fly from Iran to Malaysia, then switched to the stolen Italian and Austrian documents to board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Malaysia's Chief Police Inspector, General Khalid Abu Bakar, is leading the investigation and spoke to the mother of Reza Delavar, who was waiting for her son's arrival at the Frankfort airport in Germany. Bakar said that while there was no intelligence associating the men to terrorists, it does not mean they are ruling out terrorism.

Bakar said his investigation into the disappearance of MH370 continues to focus their attention on the possibility of a hijacking or sabotage, along with personal problems and psychological issues among the crew members and passengers.
