The whereabouts of a missing Malaysia Airlines plane are still unknown, more than two days after it disappeared on its way to Beijing.

China is calling on Malaysia to step up its search, but officials in Kuala Lumpur say they are doing everything the can.

There are also questions about two men who were traveling on stolen passports on the flight, which had 239 people on board.

The BBC’s Jennifer Pak is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details.
