Australia checking 2 objects in search for plane

Posted: Updated:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Australian search planes are looking for two objects spotted by satellite that may be linked to the Malaysia Airlines jetliner that's been missing since March 8.

In comments to lawmakers, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot didn't say where the objects were seen, but military planes from Australia, the U.S. and New Zealand have been searching the southern Indian Ocean.

He cautions that actually locating the objects will be extremely difficult and that it may turn out they are not related to the aircraft.
