Malaysia Airlines announced on Monday that the missing Flight MH370 had "beyond any reasonable doubt" been lost in the Indian Ocean.
Earlier in the day, a Royal Australian Air Force P3 Orion spotted objects in the southern Indian Ocean. Prime Minister Tony Abbott spoke to the Australian House of Representatives, saying, "The crew on board the Orion reported seeing two objects, the first a grey or green circular object and the second an orange rectangular object."
He had cautioned that there was no confirmation that these two objects were from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared early in the morning of March 8, 2014. Australian ship HMAS Success, the only ship in the area, is on its way to attempt to recover the debris. It should be there by Tuesday, March 25, AWST.
China and France have also spotted objects on satellite images and sent them to Australian and Malaysian governments, and according to the Los Angeles Times, Chinese planes also spotted objects.
