More than a dozen grieving relatives of passengers from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have been kicked out of their hotel rooms in Kuala Lumpur.

More than a dozen grieving relatives of passengers from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have been kicked out of their hotel rooms in Kuala Lumpur.

The relatives were staying at the Cyberview Hotel to await news of the missing flight but they were forced to give up their hotel rooms to the Ferrari F1 Team which is in town for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

When reached by NBC News, F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone said the hotel arrangements were likely made long before the plane disappeared. He went on to say "I feel terribly, terribly sorry for these people but it is up to the hotel. What would happen if you told somebody that they no longer had a booking? You would get sued, I’d imagine.”
