Posted: 19 May 2014 05:20 PM PDT

PUTRAJAYA: Intan Maizura Othman, the wife of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 steward Mohd Hazrin Hasnan, has given birth to a baby boy.

Muhammad was born at 4pm Monday, 73 days after Mohd Hazrin went missing together with 238 others on board the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Born at the Putrajaya Hospital, Muhammad is the second child of Mohd Hazrin and Intan Maizura,34.

Flight MH370, with 239 people on board including 12 crewmembers, left the KL International Airport at 12.41am on March 8 and disappeared from radar screens about an hour later while over the South China Sea.

The Boeing 777-200ER aircraft was supposed to land in Beijing at 6.30am on the same day.

A multinational search was launched to trace the aircraft, initially in the South China Sea, and then in the southern Indian Ocean when it was determined to have deviated from its original path. – Bernama

61 NS trainees display Influenza-like symptoms

Posted: 19 May 2014 09:00 AM PDT

ALOR SETAR: National Service trainees based at the Dusun Minda Resort in Kuala Nerang with Influenza-like Illness symptoms have risen by seven to 61.

All the 61 students, including the four tested positive for the H1N1 virus on Sunday have symptoms such as fever, flu, cough and sore throat.

NS director Datuk Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil said parents should not be unduly worried as the "medical team has everything under control and the trainees are safe".

"All of the affected trainees are in an upbeat mood and our camp's medical team together with those from the district Health Department are monitoring their situation closely," he said when visiting the camp yesterday, adding that the cause of the virus was still unknown.

Abdul Hadi clarified that the trainees are not quarantined but "separated from the other healthy trainees".

"The affected trainees are separated and placed in dorms within the camp that are about 200m away from the other trainees."

He said the camp would be closed for a four-day semester break from May 30 and the state Health Department medical officers would assess the affected trainees before deciding if they would be allowed to go home.

"Classroom activities for the healthy trainees will carry on as usual but physical activities will be limited to prevent the trainees from falling sick."

It was reported earlier that the number of trainees who were affected by the symptoms were 54.

Meanwhile, Chai Chee Keong, 48, is concerned over the well being of his daughter after he learnt that she has been sick since Thursday.

"When we wanted to visit her on Saturday, we were initially not allowed to see her," said Chai, a Sungai Petani resident.

However, after several requests, Chai was eventually allowed to meet his daughter.

"She told me that her fever fluctuates and feels okay during the day but the fever will spike at night."

Camp authorities refused Chai's request to take his daughter out for treatment when he showed up at the camp yesterday.

"I was told that this was to control the virus from spreading," he said.

In June 2012, many trainees at the Dusun Minda NS camp were affected by the H1N1 virus, all of whom recovered.

Pope's Jordan visit to unify faiths

Posted: 19 May 2014 09:00 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: Pope Francis 1's upcoming visit to Jordan underscores the deep co-existence of Jordanians of different faiths.

The May 24 visit will be the fourth papal visit of its kind.

The Jordanian Embassy here said the country was proud to welcome the pope on his "pilgrimage to the site of Jesus' baptism at Bethany Beyond the Jordan."

It said the visit would emphasise the biblical importance of sites around Jordan as well as illustrate the depth of co-existence between Jordanians of different faiths.

The embassy noted the Catholic Church had designated five sites around Jordan as pilgrimage sites for the year 2000.

In this regard, it welcomed all press and media members to go to Jordan and cover the visit.

Many Malaysia Christian pilgrims to Jordan visit the Moses Memorial Church at Mt Nebo, Tell Mar Elias (St Elijah's Hill), Bethany Beyond the Jordan where Elijah's ascension to heaven in a chariot of fire is believed to have taken place and Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist in the Jordan River, and to cross into Israel.

The embassy said the pope would meet King Abdullah II on May 24 before heading to Amman Interna­tional Stadium to give a mass sermon open to the public.

"Afterwards, His Holiness will head to the Baptism site before meeting with sick and disabled people and Iraqi and Syrian refugees."

The embassy said the visit underlined Jordan's religious significance for Christian pilgrims as well as reiterate the message "about the co-existence in the diverse cultures and faiths around Jordan that is reflected in our varied historical and religious sites spanning millennia, civilisations and religions."

"His Holiness Pope Francis I will come to the holy site of Jesus' Bap­tism to be blessed by the waters of the Jordan River and bless his disabled and refugee guests in the same waters where Jesus Christ was baptised."

The majority of Jordan's 4.4 million people are Arabs descended from various tribes that have migrated to the area over the years. (

More than 92% are Sunni Muslims with small groups of Shi'ite and Druze.

About 6% are Christians who live mainly in Amman, Madaba, Karak and Salt.

While the majority are from the Greek Orthodox Church, there are also Greek Catholics, a small Roman Catholic community, Syrian Ortho­dox, Coptic Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox and a few Protestant denominations found mostly in Amman.
