Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak received a call from his Australian counterpart Tony Abbott at 10:00 am this morning, informing him that "two possible objects related to the search for" MH370 had been identified in the Southern Indian Ocean, Malaysian official said Thursday in a statement.
"The Australian High Commissioner has also briefed me on the situation," Hishammuddin Hussein, minister of defense and acting minister of transport of Malaysia, said in the statement.
He said at this stage, the Australian officials had yet to establish whether these objects were indeed related to the search for MH370.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced earlier on Thursday that objects possibly related to the search for the missing Malaysian flight MH370 had been found in the southern Indian Ocean.
Addressing Parliament, Abbott said new satellite images show two possible objects in the ocean and an Australian Orion aircraft is on its way to the area.
New and credible information had come to light in relation to the search, the prime minister said.
