Latest on jet mystery : French images show possible debris

French satellite images of debris in the southern Indian Ocean have raised hopes that the search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jet is getting closer to discovering the fate of the flight that disappeared two weeks ago en route to Beijing.

Malaysian authorities said images from a French satellite showed “potential objects” near the search area southwest of Perth, Australia.

The images have been passed on to Australian authorities, who are coordinating a search for possible debris from the plane in a remote stretch of ocean 2,500 kilometres southwest of Perth.

There were no details on the size, number or location of the objects in the French pictures.

It comes a day after Malaysian authorities announced a Chinese satellite captured a floating object measuring around 22.5 metres in length in the same area.

Australia, along with military from New Zealand, Japan, China and United States, have been searching a 32,000 kilometre square area of the sea ever since Australian authorities said a satellite captured two floating objects that may be related to the missing plane – one measuring 24 metres long, the other around five metres.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared on March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

Investigators believe the plane was deliberately diverted from it scheduled route, and may have followed one of two flight corridors: one towards the southwest and the Indian Ocean; the other a northern arc stretching to Kazakhstan.
