Jakarta, Dec 30: As the debris and bodies of the ill-fated AirAsia Flight QZ8501 were spotted on the third day of the mishap on Tuesday, a shocking report has emerged that the disaster was predicted two weeks before by a Chinese blogger.
According to media reports, the mysterious Chinese blogger, who reportedly calls himself a "Landlord" had warned on Monday, Dec 15 that 'AirAsia would be targeted by a shadowy organisation called 'Black Hand' that also sabotaged two Malaysian airlines - MH17 and MH370, early this year.
His sensational blog to Tianya, a Chinese version of Reddit, went viral on the social media and lead to an online frenzy.
His blog reportedly says: "Black hand has hijacked and shot down MH370 and MH17. This has pretty much killed the sixth largest airline: Malaysian airline. Now the black hand are targeting AirAsia to ruin this airline cause (sic) it too belong to Malaysia. Given how powerful the black hand are I suggest that all Chinese thinking about travelling to avoid AirAisa, so that you don't disappear like those on MH370."
The blogger also repeated his warning on December 16 and 17, adding: 'This is a major event in human life, we have to pay attention.'
