Two Objects Sighted in Jet Search

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.
