(Flight MH370) Chinese vessel begins search early
(03-29 11:40)

Chinese ship, the Haixun 01 began attempting to relocate recently-detected objects at first light today in the southern Indian Ocean.
It was joined by a navy vessel Jinggangshan, which carries two helicopters, Xinhua said.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority expects six ships to be in place by the end of the day, including HMAS Success and five Chinese vessels as they comb an area of roughly the size of Norway.
The authority said weather conditions today were good, although they could deteriorate later in the day.
Yet the objects they are trying to find are tiny. New Zealand Air Vice-Marshal Kevin Short saying the items seen from a New Zealand Orion yesterday were mostly rectangular and ranging in size from just 50-100 centimetres.—AFP
