STORYLINE:

Malaysian Airline officials led prayers on Tuesday for the victims of the twin tragedies involving flights MH370 and MH17.

The ceremony was held near the company's training centre in Petaling Jaya.

The session was attended by airline staff and officials, including the Malaysian Airlines Chief Executive, Ahmad Jauhari.

According to the airline's head of Strategic Communications Najmuddin Abdullah, staff have shown a great deal of resilience following the two disasters.

He told AP Television "we are always ready to lend any form of support towards each other."

Flight MH370 vanished on 8 March while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

Despite a multinational search effort, the whereabouts of Flight MH370 are still a mystery.

Flight MH17 was shot down on July 17 over an area of Ukraine controlled by pro-Russia separatists on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, killing all 298 people onboard.

An international investigation is ongoing, but no one has been arrested.
