Background checks on the 154 Chinese citizens aboard missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, including a Uighur passenger from the northwestern region of Xinjiang, had not turned up any evidence of their possible involvement in a hijack attempt, according to Beijing’s ambassador to Kuala Lumpur.

Huang Huikang’s comments, reported by China Central Television on Tuesday, came as Chinese authorities initiated a search of their own territory for the missing airliner.
