An Iranian bought the tickets of passengers with lost Passports

Interpol revealed that the two passports used by unidentified individuals to address the missing flight of Malaysia Airlines are included in its database of stolen passports.

Meanwhile, Thai police confirmed that the man, identified as Ali Kazem, paid in cash. The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 disappeared on Saturday with 227 passengers on board and the theory of the attack grows.

An Italian and an Austrian appeared on the passenger list of flight to Beijing, but never boarded the plane, which disappeared shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.

The China Airline, who shared the flight with Malaysia Airlines, said the passages were reserved in their offices on behalf of the two European to travel from Kuala Lumpur to cities in Europe via Beijing. The numbers were consecutive passages, indicating that they bought one after another.

Interpol officials said no country consulted the database to extract information about either passports.

Interpol has a huge database with more than 40 million lost or stolen passports. It was created in 2002, following the terrorist attacks of September 11 in the United States.
