The search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 took a new turn after satellite images of an area some 2,350 kilometres off the coast of Perth identified "objects" floating in the sea possibly related to the disappearance of the plane.

The largest object snapped by satellites passing over the Indian Ocean is believed to measure 24 metres, while a number of smaller objects were also seen, according to John Young, general manager of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority's emergency response division.
