KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — The Malaysian government has released 47 pages of raw satellite data used to conclude that the missing Malaysia Airlines jet crashed into the southern Indian Ocean.

Some family members of the 239 people on board have been demanding Malaysia release the data so that independent experts can verify it.

The Associated Press is asking experts to review the technical data, which was released Tuesday to family members and then to the media.

The plane left Kuala Lumpur on March 8 en route to Beijing.

An ongoing search effort in the southern Indian Ocean has found no trace of the plane.
