Australia Locates Two Objects Related to Missing Malaysia Plane

Australia says it has located two objects in the southern Indian Ocean possibly related to a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Thursday the objects, which appear to be parts of an aircraft, were spotted in satellite photos.

Officials plan to hold a news conference later Thursday to discuss the findings.

Australia has been helping coordinate the southern section of the search for the plane, which vanished on March 8 without a trace.
