Australia resumes ocean search for possible plane debris
Australia prepared to resume its search today for possible plane wreckage floating in a remote and stormy section of the Indian Ocean, as the vast international hunt for a missing passenger jet entered its 13th day.
Surveillance aircraft yesterday searched for a pair of floating objects captured by satellite imagery, which Australia and Malaysia guardedly called a "credible" lead in the baffling mystery surrounding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
The Australian-led search was due to restart at first light, as a Norwegian merchant ship arrived in the target area about 2,500 kilometres southwest of Perth, after warnings of poor weather conditions and limited visibility.
