Chinese website may show images of plane debris from Malaysia Air flight 370Updated: 2014-03-13 14:19:19 (KST)
As the search for Malaysia Airlines flight 370 entered its sixth day on Thursday, new images have surfaced that may provide fresh clues about the plane's whereabouts.
The satellite images, captured on March 9th, were posted late Wednesday on the website of China's State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense.
They show what the site says are three large floating objects spread across a 20-square-kilometer span of water in the sea off the southern tip of Vietnam and east of Malaysia.
The Malaysian government said it has dispatched an aircraft to the site to investigate, however officials say it is far from certain whether the three objects will be in the same location now, as the satellite images were taken four days ago.
