Satellite spots 122 objects in search

Perth, Australia (AP) Malaysian officials said a satellite has captured images of 122 objects in the Indian Ocean that might be from the missing plane.

Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said the objects were seen close to where three other satellites previously detected objects.

He said Wednesday the sightings together are "the most credible lead that we have."

Hishammuddin said the images were taken Sunday and were relayed by French-based Airbus Defense and Space.

Hishammuddin said the objects ranged in length from one meter to 23 meters.

Various floating objects have been spotted by planes and satellites, but none has been retrieved or identified.

A dozen planes and five ships are again hunting for the objects after seas calmed today. Nothing has been retrieved yet.

New data narrowed the search zone, but it remains huge, estimated at 622,000 square miles, about the size of Alaska. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott called it "the most inaccessible spot imaginable."
