Malaysia plane: Objects in ocean remain unidentified

Thailand's space agency says a satellite has detected up to 300 floating objects in an area of the southern Indian Ocean where the missing Malaysian passenger plane is thought to have vanished.

The objects are reported to have been up to 15m in size. A French satellite had previously spotted about 120 objects that could be from the missing flight.

MH370 disappeared on 8 March with 239 people on board. No debris has been recovered from the ocean so far.

Searches by planes were suspended on Thursday because of poor visibility.

Jonathan Head reports from Perth.
