KUALA LUMPUR - Two children of a passenger on Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 have sued the company and the Malaysian government for damages, the first lawsuit to be filed over the aircraft which disappeared in March.

The two Malaysian boys, aged 13 and 14, filed the suit at the High Court registry, also naming the heads of the Department of Civil Aviation, the Immigration Department and the country's air force, The Star newspaper reported on Saturday.

Their father, 41-year old Jee Jing Hang, was on the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing carrying 239 passengers and crew when it went missing on March 8. Nearly eight months of searching by various parties has failed to find any trace of the missing Boeing 777 aircraft .

The two boys are seeking damages for the loss of support and mental anguish, claiming that the airline had breached an agreement to guarantee a safe passage for their father to Beijing, The Star said in a report on its website.
