Chinese satellite images show three floating objects suspected to be debris from the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, according to reports. Coordinates place the fragments in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam

The three objects are sized 13x18, 14x19, and 24x22 (meters), according to CNN.

The images, from China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense, were taken on Sunday morning but only released Wednesday, the BBC reported.

Flight MH370 went missing on Saturday morning local time. The China-bound plane left Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with 239 people on board. The plane lost communication about an hour after taking flight.

If the location holds true, it would indicate that the plane crashed not far from the last confirmed radar contact with MH370. It would also contradict reports this week that the plane had turned around, heading back to Malaysia as far as the Strait of Malacca.

“It also ties in with an earlier claim from an oil rig worker who claimed he saw a plane on fire over the South China Sea, southeast of Vietnam,” the Guardian wrote.

Malaysian authorities who met with the relatives of the flight’s passengers on Wednesday told them that the last radio transmission from MH370 was either “All right, roger that,” or “All right, good night,” according to different reports.

I dont follow politics at all, not going to call out any judgemental comments either, im just an normal caring individual curious about whats really going on. I pray for all those planes passengers on tht flight and the families of people on the flight as well. In light of all these worldly issues every country deals with in their own way I pray for all these countries citizens stuck in the middle like myself. God bless those true believers all over the world

why US is bothered about other countries matters ? who asks US to act as solicitor ? In the name of humanitarian aid , US army try to control other country. Then american companies flock in that country to make money. Because american blue chips companies control US president & army. In this way american politicians and companies flourish, they destroy Ukrainian industries. Steal Ukrainian nuclear & air force technologies.Ukraini an people should understand it is a trap in name of sovereignty by USA. America only knows to market & sell themselves as good in movies, but truth is they borrow money from others to live on
