Malaysia to release satellite data on missing jet

The Malaysian authorities and telecommunications company Inmarsat will release satellite data used to narrow the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

Relatives of some of the 239 people on board the flight that disappeared on March 8 have called for the data to made public so that it can be scrutinized independently, the report said.

The Department of Civil Aviation of Malaysia and Inmarsat said the data will be released with a technical description but did not specify when this would occur.

No wreckage from the flight has been found but investigators believe the plane went down in the southern Indian Ocean.
