(Flight MH370) Thais share sightings of 300 objects
(03-27 16:50)

Thai satellite images have shown 300 floating objects in the southern Indian Ocean during a search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, an official said today.
The objects, ranging in size from 2 to 15 meters, were scattered over an area about 2,700 kilometers southwest of Perth, according to the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency.
“But we cannot – dare not – confirm they are debris from the plane,'' the agency's executive director, Anond Snidvongs, told AFP. He said the information had been given to Malaysia.
The pictures were taken by Thailand's only earth observation satellite on Monday.
He said the objects were seen about 200 kilometers away from an area where French satellite images earlier showed potential objects.—AFP
