Air accident investigators successfully extracted data from Malaysia Airlines flight MH17's two "black boxes", Air Accident Investigation Branch lab in Farnborough said.

The Dutch Safety Board, which is coordinating the inquiry into the causes of the disaster, in which 194 Dutch citizens died, said it had found no evidence that the Boeing 777's Flight Data Recorder and Cockpit Voice Recorder had been tampered with. 

The flight's so-called "black boxes" were handed over to the Dutch Safety Board in Kiev Tuesday evening and promptly shipped by air to the United Kingdom. 

The Netherlands, which lost nearly 200 citizens on the flight, has taken over formal responsibility for the air crash investigation.

Investigators say the analysis of the two black boxes will take several weeks.
