Satellite images reveal objects in Indian Ocean, possibly debris

PanARMENIAN.Net - New satellite images have revealed more than 100 objects in the southern Indian Ocean that could be debris from a Malaysian jetliner missing since March 8 with 239 people on board, Malaysia's acting transport minister said on Wednesday, March 26, according to Reuters.

Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference that the images were captured by France-based Airbus Defense and Space on March 23.

They are the fourth set of satellite images to show potential debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in a remote part of the Indian Ocean roughly 2,500 km (1,550 miles) south west of Perth. No confirmed debris from the Boeing 777 has yet been identified.
