As the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 entered its 13th day, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Thursday that two objects possibly related to the search have been sighted.
Abbott told parliament ‘new and credible information’ had come to light nearly two weeks after the plane vanished. He said an Australian air force Orion had been diverted to look into the objects. He did not specify where they were but Australia has taken charge of the search in the southern Indian Ocean.
Australia will be taking responsibility for the southern vector of the search operation to locate Boeing 777.
