Son defends pilot of downed Malaysian jet

KUALA LUMPUR : The youngest son of the pilot whose flight went down in the Indian Ocean has dismissed speculation his father may have crashed the plane intentionally, a report said Thursday. Ahmad Seth, son of captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, said he knew what kind of man his father was. "I've read everything online. But I've ignored all the speculation. I know my father better," Seth, 26, was quoted by the New Straits Times as saying. "We may not be close as he travels so much. But I understand him," the language student added in his first public remarks. Zaharie, 53, along with his co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid, 27, has come under intense scrutiny after Malaysian authorities said flight MH370's disappearance on March 8 was due to "deliberate" action by someone on the plane.
