Malaysia's government on Sunday asked for help from nearly a dozen Asian countries that the missing jetliner may have flown over, saying that finding the plane would be very difficult without additional data on its final movements. Meanwhile, police were examining a flight simulator belonging to one of the pilots of the Malaysia Airlines plane, which went missing more than a week ago, with 239 passengers aboard a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The government said police searched the homes of both of the plane's pilots on Saturday--the first time they have done so since the plane went missing. Police chief Inspector General Khalid Abu BakarAsked, when why it took them so long to do so, said authorities "didn't see the necessity in the early stages."
