AKIPRESS.COM - gf The Thai satellite spotted 300 objects possibly part of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean, Thai space agency said Thursday.

Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency executive director Anond Snidvongs told AFP the objects, ranging from two to 15 metres in size, were scattered over an area about 2700 kilometres southwest of Perth.

“But we cannot — dare not — confirm they are debris from the plane,” he said. The pictures were taken by Thailand’s only earth observation satellite on Monday but took several days to process. He said the information had been given to Malaysia.

The objects were spotted about 200km away from an area where French satellite images earlier showed potential objects in the search for the Boeing 777 which vanished on March 8 with 239 people aboard.
