(NEWSER) – Another day of searching has yielded no trace of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but investigators have solved one of the mysteries surrounding the missing plane. The two passengers who boarded using stolen passportshave been identified as Iranian men Pouria Nour Mohammadi, 18, and Delavar Seyed Mohammad Reza, 29,CNN reports. Neither has any known links to terror groups. And Interpol this morning indicated that terrorism seemed unlikely: "The more information we get, the more we are inclined to conclude it is not a terrorist incident," Secretary General Ronald Noble said today. Further details and developments:


  • Investigators believe Mohammadi was planning to seek asylum in Germany, where his mother contacted authorities after he failed to arrive in Frankfurt. A source tells the BBC that the other passenger may also have been planning to settle in Europe. Both left Qatar using their Iranian passports, then switched to the stolen passports to board the Malaysia Airlines flight.
