KUALA LUMPUR –  Officials say an Iranian man–identified as Kazem Ali–bought plane tickets for the two passengers who boarded the Malaysia Airlines flight with stolen passports.  That plane has been missing since early Saturday morning.

The Boeing 777 vanished from the skies during its route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

There were reportedly no indications of problems on the flight.  Now ten countries are involved in the search. Foul play has not been ruled out.
