KUALA LUMPUR - The high-level team from Malaysia will depart for Beijing again on Tuesday evening after a grieve-stricken crowd attempted to storm into the Malaysia embassy in the Chinese capital in the afternoon.

Malaysia Airlines chief Ahmad Jauhari Yahya acknowledged at Tuesday's press briefing that "the fact that there were not enough details" from Prime Minister Najib Razak's announcement on Monday had led to speculations that the Malaysian authorities are "holding back information".

But the high-level team from Malaysia will return to Beijing to clear the air, providing answers to the questions from family members of those aboard MH370. They will also be given an update on the status of the search mission. 

"We will let them know how we've actually narrowed the search area to the southern part of southern corridor," said Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein.
