PERTH, Australia - The Associated Press
A member of staff at satellite communications company Inmarsat works in front of a screen showing subscribers using their service throughout the world, at their headquarters in London March 25, 2014. REUTERS PhotoMalaysia says a satellite has captured images of 122 objects in the Indian Ocean that might be from the missing plane.
Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says the objects were seen close to where three other satellites previously detected objects.
He said Wednesday the sightings together are "the most credible lead that we have."
Hishammuddin said the images were taken Sunday and were relayed by French-based Airbus Defense and Space.
Hishammuddin says the objects ranged in length from one meter (yard) to 23 meters (25 yards).
Various floating objects have been spotted by planes and satellites, but none has been retrieved or identified.
