Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says a new analysis of satellite data shows that the missing Malaysia Airlines plane plunged into the southern Indian Ocean.

On Monday, Malaysia Airlines sent a text message to inform the families of victims. It read, in part, "Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived."

The news comes after a two-week struggle to find out what happened to Flight 370, which disappeared shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew aboard.

According to a statement from Malaysia Airlines, the "ongoing multinational search" will continue, as the airline seeks to find answers. The airline also said it will continue to support the families in the difficult weeks ahead.
