(Flight MH370) Debris not from Boeing 777, China civil aviation chief says
(03-13 10:48)

A senior Chinese aviation official said the authorities could not confirm any link between the floating objects captured on Chinese satellite images to a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 missing for more than five days.
“It is true that the satellite was launched and detected some smoke and what were suspected metal shreds about 37 kilometers southwest of Ho Chi Minh City,'' said Li Jiaxiang, chief of the Civil Aviation Administration of China. “But after some review, we cannot confirm that they belong to the missing plane.''
The three objects of varying sizes were seen in the sea off the southern tip of Vietnam and east of Malaysia on Sunday morning.—AP
