KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Just 43 per cent of Malaysians are satisfied with their government's handling of the missing-plane mystery while 50 per cent are dissatisfied, according to a survey released Tuesday.

The Merdeka Centre for Opinion Research, Malaysia's leading polling firm, said the survey of more than 1,000 people was conducted from March 13 to 20.

Since that time, however, there has been rising anger among Malaysians against Chinese and other criticism over the fate of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The plane veered off course on March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, including 50 Malaysian citizens. It is believed to have crashed in the remote Indian Ocean, but nothing is known as to what caused it to deviate from its flight path.
