A Norwegian ship is reported to have spotted suspected debris from the missing Malaysian jetliner in the southern Indian Ocean. The location is in one of the remotest parts of the globe, around 2,500 kilometre southwest of Perth in Australia.
Reuters said that the Norwegian ship arrived in the area after a request from Australian authorities to assist in investigations. On arrival, it spotted two floating objects which could be linked to the missing plane. Australian officials said that the two objects measured up to 24 and 5 metres long and appeared to be suspended several thousand metres deep into the waters.
The Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished from air traffic control screens off Malaysia’s east coast early on March 8. The plane was on way from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing.
