The hunt for more black box "pings" from missing Malaysian airliner MH370 was narrowing to a specific patch of Remote Ocean after two more signals were detected.

The head of the Australian-led search Angus Houston raised hopes yesterday that debris will be found within days even as the black box batteries start to expire.

Houston's Joint Agency Coordination Centre announced the search area off western Australia was now 57 thousand 923 square kilometres -- some 20,000 square kilometres down yesterday.

But Australian ship Ocean Shield is focused on an area of the Indian Ocean 2,280 kilometres northwest of Perth where it picked up two fresh signals on Tuesday.
