French satellite finds possible Malaysia flight debris field

Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said Wednesday that a French satellite found 122 objects in the Indian Ocean that could potentially be a plane debris field related to the missing Malaysian Flight MH370.

The images, which were captured Sunday by France-based Airbus Defence and Space, show objects ranging from 3 to 75 feet in length. The potential debris field stretches across a 155 square mile area of the ocean in a region southwest of Australia.

“We have now had four separate satellite leads, from Australia, China and France, showing possible debris,” Hussein said in a news conference. “It is now imperative that we link the debris to MH370.”

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has been missing since March 8 with 239 passengers. On Monday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that satellite data showed the plane most likely crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.
