Malaysia's Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said Thursday the country has dispatched an aircraft to the site where Chinese satellites photographed three "suspected floating objects" in the search for a missing Malaysia passenger jet.

China's State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) said on its website on Wednesday that the three suspected objects were monitored at 6.7 degrees north latitude and 105.63 degrees east longitude, spreading across an area with a radius of 20 kilometers.
