KUALA LUMPUR, March 9 (Reuters) - Malaysian investigators are checking the identity of four passengers on a missing Malaysia Airlines flight, but have not yet determined if the plane was downed by an attack, the country's transport minister said on Sunday

"All the four names are with me," Hishamuddin Hussein, who is also defence minister, told reporters.

He confirmed that Malaysian investigators had met counterparts from the U.S. FBI, and said the investigation was focusing on the entire passenger manifest.
