KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – Malaysia said on Thursday it dispatched an aircraft to investigate the site where Chinese satellites photographed three “suspected floating objects”, near an area where several nations have been hunting for wreckage from a missing passenger plane.
“Bombardier has already been dispatched to investigate alleged claims of debris being found by Chinese satellite imagery,” Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said on his Twitter feed, on the sixth day of the search for Malaysia Airlines flight 370 and the 239 people on board.
Meanwhile, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said that the Chinese government is deeply concerned about safety of passengers. There are 8 Chinese vessels in the sea area, and 10 Chinese satellites have joined the search. Yesterday Premier Li spoke to one of the captains. China has asked parties to enhance coordination. China will enhance international cooperation to ensure the safety of Chinese citizens abroad.
