There could been a 9/11 type attack on an Indian city with Flight MH 370, the Malaysian Airlines plane missing since March 8, former US deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbott claimed on Twitter on Saturday.

This is Talbott’s tweet: “Malaysian plane mystery: Direction, fuel load & range now lead some to suspect hijackers planned a 9/11-type attack on an Indian city.”

The well-known foreign policy analyst however did not say who were suspecting the possibility of such an attack. Talbott is the chairman of Brookings Institution, a think-tank in Washington.

The startling claim came after the Malaysian government said MH 370 was deliberately diverted from its path and flew on for nearly seven hours before it vanished. There is a growing belief that the plane may have crashed into the Indian Ocean.

On September 11, 2001, hijackers had crashed two planes into the twin towers of World Trade Center in New York, killing thousands. However, there has so far been no such similar attack anywhere.
