Malaysia will release raw satellite data from the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, The Civil Aviation Department and British company Inmarsat announced today. Some family members of the passengers had demanded that the data be released to allow for independent analysis.

The plane, the wreckage from which has yet to be recovered by Australian officials, is believed by the Malaysian government to have purposely veered off course and into the Indian Ocean during its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
