Australian satellite images found objects that are possibly connected to the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing with 239 people on board March 8. “New and credible information has come to light in relation to the search,” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told his Parliament on Thursday.
“The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has received information based on satellite imagery of objects possibly related to the search,” Abbott said. “Following specialist analysis of this satellite imagery, two possible objects related to the search have been identified.”
Four aircraft have been diverted to the southern Indian Ocean to locate the objects, which include a nearly 80-foot piece of debris.
Abbott cautioned “the task of locating these objects will be extremely difficult and it may turn out that they are not related to the search for flight MH370.”
