There was a dramatic scene before Wednesday's press briefing about the missing Malaysian jet.

Families of the passengers on board stormed the auditorium, accusing the government of hiding information. Protestors were dragged out of the briefing by security.

The acting transport minister addressed the chaos saying one of the country's main priorities is managing emotions and appeasing the families.

Malaysian authorities said data had been deleted back in February from the flight simulator that was confiscated from the pilot's house.

An initial review of the pilot and co-pilot reportedly turned up no evidence of hijacking plans.

Australian officials say they've cut their search area in the southern Indian Ocean by half using new analysis of the plane's likely fuel consumption.
