Controversial Face of Missing Jet Hunt Loses Job

Malaysia's acting transport minister - the country's public face for the much-criticized effort to find the missing Boeing 777 that vanished on March 8 - has been replaced, NBC News reported. As part of a Cabinet reshuffle announced by Prime Minister Najib Razak, Hishammuddin Hussein will no longer hold the position. Malaysian authorities have repeatedly come under fire for delays in releasing vital information about the plane's route. A total of 239 people were aboard the ill-fated aircraft.
