A Malaysian woman is suing Malaysia Airlines and the government for $7.6 million in damages over the loss of her husband on Flight 370, which disappeared mysteriously in 2014.

Lawyers say more lawsuits are expected over the next few days ahead of a two-year filing deadline over air accidents set by a global aviation agreement.

Flight 370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The search is ongoing in the southern Indian Ocean.

Lawyer Shailender Bhar says the lawsuit filed Thursday by K.Sri Devi, 32, her two young sons and parents-in-law alleged wrongful death of S.Puspanathan due to alleged negligence and breach of contract by the airline and government agencies.
