Thai satellite finds 300 floating objects in jet search
Thailand has spotted 300 floating objects in the southern Indian Ocean during a satellite search for the missing Malaysian airliner.
The objects, ranging from 2 to 15 metres in size, were scattered over an area about 2,700 kilometres southwest of Perth.
Malaysia had said last night, that images taken in recent days by a French satellite showed "122 potential objects" adrift in the vast area, but nothing has been recovered yet, that would confirm the plane's fate.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 is presumed to have crashed on March 8th in the Indian Ocean, with 239 people aboard, after mysteriously diverting from its Kuala Lumpur-Beijing path and apparently flying for hours in the opposite direction.
