Reports of satellite images identifying objects in Indian Ocean
The Sydney Morning Herald has published satellite images which are believed to identify "122 objects in a 400-square-kilometre area of the Indian Ocean", which is where authorities think the missing Malaysia Airlines plane ended up.

These images are from a French satellite. Malaysia's acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said on Wednesday they "are from one metre to 23 metres in length and some appeared to be bright, possibly indicating solid materials."
"This will enable us to further reduce the search area and locate more debris from the plane," Mr Hishammuddin said.

This satellite and radar data now "corroborates some form of objects and debris", said Mr Hishammuddin.
"If it is confirmed to be MH370, at least we can move on with deep sea surveillance search and rescue and hopefully [find] the black box," he said.
