(Pics) Chinese spot "white and square" objects relevant to MH370
Kuala Lumpur, March 24: A Chinese aircrew has spotted big, white objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean that resembles the missing MH370 that is still untraceable even after 14 days.
Investigators traced two very big floating objects along with smaller white ones that are scattered within the radius of several kilometers. The information was sent by a reporter on board the Chinese Ilyushin-76 plane.
"The crew has reported the coordinates - 95.1113 degrees east and 42.5453 south - to the Australian command centre as well as Chinese icebreaker Xuelong, which is en route to the sea area," said the Xinhua News Agency.
Earlier Xinhua had reported that a Chinese military plane was set off from the western Australian city of Perth in search of the "suspicious debris" that was captured by a satellite imagery in the remote waters.
MH 370 lost all ground contacts on March 8 at 1:57 am and cannot be traced yet. The plane was carrying 239 passengers, among whom two-thirds were from China. Two Chinese planes have been deported to the area.
