THE World has been put into shock today by the story of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 going down in Eastern Ukraine on Thursday.
 
As more details on the crash comes to surface, perhaps a more shocking detail to come out is one of the passengers on board the flight happens to be the step-grandmother of both Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and the Minister of Defence Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.
 
According to a source close to the families of both leaders (whom are cousins), one of the passengers on board was Puan Sri Siti Amirah Prawira Kusuma. She is the second wife to Tan Sri Mohd Noah.
 
Tan Sri Mohd Noah happens to be the father to Tun Raha (Najib's mother) and Tun Suhaila (Hishammuddin's mother).
