SYDNEY, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Australia has registered satellite data that indicates two objects, which could possibly be debris from the missing Malaysian Boeing 777-200, were spotted west off Perth in the Indian Ocean, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said.
Four rescue planes involved in the search operation have urgently flown to the site.
Abbott noted that suggestions about two objects being debris from the Malaysian plane are not yet confirmed. “The task of locating these objects will be extremely difficult, and it may turn out that they are not related to the plane,” the prime minister explained. At the same time, Abbott said that he called Malaysian Prime Minister and shared with him “new reliable information” about the search operation in the south of the Indian Ocean.
Australia has joined the search for the missing Malaysian plane on March 19. Three planes of the Australian Air Force are partaking in the operation, along with a plane from New Zealand and US.
