Australia Says Debris May be From Malaysian Airlines Jet

Australia Malaysia PlaneAn international team of surveillance planes is scouring the south Indian Ocean for a second day. Their hope is to find debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines jet that disappeared 12 days ago.The latest search operation was launched after Australian officials said satellite imagery showed objects floating in remote seas off the southwestern coast of the country. Malaysia’s government called it a ‘credible lead’. A satellite detected two large objects floating about 1,000 miles off the southwestern coast of Australia and halfway to the desolate islands of the Antarctic. The development raised new hope of finding the vanished jet and sent another emotional jolt to the families of the 239 people aboard.  But revelations the images were captured four days ago raised fears the debris may have already floated several hundred kilometers away.  CCTV’s Hannah Belcher reports from Sydney.
