Images of 2 Iranians on missing plane

Interpol has released an image of two Iranians who were travelling with stolen passports on a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner.

The image showed the two men boarding a plane at the same time. Interpol secretary general Ronald K. Noble said Tuesday the two travelled to Malaysia on Iranian passports, then apparently switched to the stolen Austrian and Italian documents.

Noble said the recent information about the men made terrorism a less likely cause of the plane's disappearance, but that did not allay concerns about the ease of travel involving stolen passports.

Citing national authorities, Interpol named the two as Seyed Mohammed Reza Delavar, 29, and Pouria Nourmohammadi. Malaysian authorities say Nourmohammadi is 19, although Interpol's information indicated an age of 18.
