    Two Objects Sighted in Jet Search

    A woman, whose husband is a passenger of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, complains about Malaysia Airlines to journalists as she attempts to leave a hotel in Beijing, March 8, 2014. The flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew went missing over the South China Sea on Saturday, presumed crashed, as ships from countries closest to its flight path scoured a large search area for any wreckage. Vietnamese state media, quoting a senior naval official, had reported that the Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had crashed off south Vietnam, but Malaysia's transport minister later denied any crash scene had been identified.

    Two objects possibly related to the missing Malaysia Airlines jet were spotted on Thursday, according to Australia's prime minister, Tony Abbott. Australian air force planes have been sent to the area to locate them. Abbott cautioned, however, that locating the objects will be extremely difficult and “it may turn out that they are not related to the search for Flight 370.” He did not disclose the location of the objects, which were spotted on satellite imagery. The Australian Orion aircraft are expected to arrive in the area Thursday afternoon.
