Nearly all Chinese relatives of passengers on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet planned to return to Beijing Sunday, after spending nearly a month in Malaysia hearing little news about what may have happened to the plane and the 239 people on board, NBC News reported. Early Sunday, the families, who have demanded more information from Malaysian authorities, held a prayer service that also drew thousands of Malaysian and Malaysian Chinese supporters. The families were generally quiet and in wait-and-see mood after news that three "acoustic events" consistent with the jet's black box were detected in the Indian Ocean.
