IMAGES: Searchers for Malaysian Airlines flight 370 checking out 2 objects found southern Indian Ocean


Officials in Australia are checking out two objects spotted in the southern Indian Ocean that may be linked to missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370

An Australian official says the largest is about 79-feet long.

Images of the objects were captured by satellite and were being assessed by the Australian Geospatial-Intelligence organization.

The images were taken near the area of the southern Indian Ocean that has been scoured by search teams in recent days.

Australian search teams have been at the forefront of the hunt for the missing plane in the remote southern Indian Ocean.

The announcement raises hopes of finding parts of the plane amid a huge search that is now in its 13th day.

Previous reports of debris found in the sea haven't turned out to be related to the passenger jet, which vanished over southeast Asia on March 8.
