Why did somebody doctor photo of men who took Flight MH370? Fears of a cover-up amid claims pictures show passengers with the same set of legs -- By Ian Drury and Candace Sutton, DailyMail.co.uk

  • Both men pictured boarded missing Flight 370 with stolen passports
  • Fears pictures were doctored as both of the men have the same legs
  • Trousers, shoes, and shadows all identical, but upper bodies are different
  • Chinese aircraft spots 'suspicious objects' in Indian Ocean
  • More images of debris adrift in the Indian Ocean were released
  • French satellite image taken 850km from current search zone
  • Australia-led operation 'clutching' at any new information
  • Search continues but so far no wreckage has been recovered

  • Fears of a cover-up over the fate of flight MH370 grew yesterday after claims that a photo of two passengers was tampered with.

    Images of two men who boarded the Malaysian Airlines jet with stolen passports appear to show them having the same set of legs.

    CCTV footage stills released by officials three days after the Boeing 777-200 vanished from the skies shows the pair with identical green trousers and brown shoes. 

     A picture of a 19-year old Iranian, identified by Malaysian police as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, appears to have been tampered withMan named as Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, 28, thought to be an Iranian asylum seeker

    Spot the similarity: The legs of these two men, named as 19-year-old Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad (left), and Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, 29, (right), appear identical, leading to suspicions of tampering

    Their feet and shadows are also in the same position, while their faces, T-shirts and bags are different.

    The photo last night fuelled conspiracy theories over the fate of the aircraft, which disappeared with 239 passengers and crew more than a fortnight ago. 

    One Twitter user wrote: ‘They both have the same legs, edited or coincidence? And you guys believe our gov is not hiding anything.’ 

    Malaysian police admitted the image of one man had been placed on top of the other when they were photocopied.

    But a spokesman said it was not ‘done with malice or to mislead’. 

    The men – thought to be Iranian asylum-seekers – have been named as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 19, and 29-year-old Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza.

    They travelled to Malaysia on Iranian passports before switching to stolen Austrian and Italian documents.

    It comes as a Chinese military aircraft today spotted 'suspicious objects' in the search zone, reporting what appeared to 'white, square' material floating on the surface of the Indian Ocean.

    The plane was guided by a satellite image released Saturday by China and reportedly sighted 'floating white objects' in the zone some 2,500 kilometres off the coast of Perth.

    Last night France became the latest country to say it has spotted debris that could be part of the missing jet - but it was revealed that sighting was 530 miles (850km) from the primary search zone.

    The objects were discovered on satellite images of the southern Indian Ocean, a direction the Boeing 777 may have taken after making a U-turn on its scheduled flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
