300 more objects spotted, bad weather disrupts jet search
Bangkok/Tokyo: Over 300 new objects were spotted by satellites of Thailand and Japan in or near the search area in the southern Indian Ocean where Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is believed to have been “lost”. Anond Snidvongs, executive director of Thailand’s Geo Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency said that the site where the additional 300 objects were detected was about 2,700 km from Perth, Australia, and about 200 km from the international search area where the ill-fated flight is thought to have come down. The objects ranged from two to 15 meters in size, he added.
According to a report from Tokyo, a Japanese satellite also spotted about 10 suspicious objects possibly related to the missing airliner in the Indian Ocean. It is believed that the biggest object is eight meters long, four meters wide. Some analysts from Japanese government thought there is a big possibility that the objects belong to the missing flight. The AMSA, which is coordinating the ongoing multinational search operation, said in an update that the search and recovery operations for flight MH370 resumed with six military aircraft, five civil aircraft and five ships.
