Malaysia Airlines search update: Australia reports seeing "possible plane debris"

BBC News Asia reports: "Australian PM Tony Abbott has just announced that two objects have been seen that could possibly relate to the missing Malaysia Airlines plane." Search and rescue teams from 26 countries have been trying to find flight MH370 since it disappeared on March 8. The Kuala Lumpur-Beijing flight had 239 people in it.


The report noted: "The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (Amsa) revealed that the debris had been located in waters some 2,500km south-west of the Australian city of Perth. An Australian Orion aircraft is currently in the search area and three more planes, including US and New Zealand aircraft, are on their way."


Abbott has said, however, that "finding the objects would be very difficult and said they could turn out to be unrelated to the Malaysian aircraft."
