SUBANG JAYA: An Indonesian fisherman today said he and three others had witnessed the final minutes of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which disappeared en route to China five years ago.

Rusli Kusmin said they had seen the plane descending as if about to land at the Straits of Melaka while they were out fishing on the morning of March 8, 2014.

Rusli, who is in his 30s, claimed his boat had been about 2km away from where the plane hit the water.

“The plane came from the north, moving towards the south,” he said at a press conference organised by a consumer group. “There was no explosion, nor were there any loud engine noises.
