Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said, "the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has received information based on satellite information of objects possibly related to the search. Following specialist analysis of this satellite imagery, two possible objects related to the search have been identified."
Australia has deployed Orion and 3 other surveillance planes to confirm.
The Prime Minister conveyed the latest information to Najib Razak, the PM of Malaysia.
However, he dissuaded people from nurturing any false hopes. He said,"We must keep in mind the task of locating these objects will be extremely difficult and it may turn out that they are not related to the search for flight MH370."
Inside sources say that the Australian air force Orion and three other surveillance aircrafts were already deployed to look into the matter. Meanwhile, the authorities in Kuala Lumpur have requested Canberra to take the responsibility of the "southern vector" of the search operation.
It is yet to be confirmed whether the jet was diverted intentionally or it got crashed.
