The Malaysia navy has tweeted some of the French images showing the potential debris field.

Pasukan penyiasat Malaysia mengumumkan imej satelit baru menunjukkan sebanyak 122 objek di dikesan di permukaan selatan Lautan Hindi dalam kawasan operasi pencarian.

Pemangku Menteri Pengangkutan Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein berkata, objek berkenaan – ada diantaranya sebesar 23 meter panjang berwarna cerah – kini sedang diteliti.




Bagaimanapun, buat masa ini belum dapat dipastikan sama ada ia benar-benar berpunca daripada pesawat Malaysia Airlines yang hilang itu, katanya.

“Namun, kita berharap petunjuk baru ini akan membantu operasi pencarian,” katanya dalam sidang media dipancarkan secara langsung di TV hari ini.

Katanya, imej yang dirakam pada 23 Mac itu diterima oleh Agensi Remote Sensing Malaysia (MRSA) dari Airbus Defence dan Space semalam.




"MRSA menganalisis imej tersebut - dalam satu kawasan lautan seluas 400 kilometer persegi - dan berjaya mengenalpasti 122 objek berpotensi.

"Ada di antaranya sepanjang satu meter, yang lain ada yang sepanjang 23 meter.

"Ada di antaranya kelihatan berkilat, mungkin menunjukkan objek pejal," kata Hishammuddin yang membaca satu kenyataan.

Tambahnya, objek berkenaan dikesan pada kedudukan kira-kira 2,557 kilomter dari Perth.

Kesemua imej berkenaan dihantar serta merta kepada Pusat Koordinasi Penyelamat Australia di Perth semalam, katanya.




Hishamuddin berkata kesemua petunjuk itu bakal membantu pasukan penyelamat dari 26 negara yang kini menumpu perhatian di selatan Lautan Hindi itu.

"Kita sudah mempunyai empat petunjuk satelit berbeza, termasuk dari Australia, China dan Perancis yang menunjukkan kemungkinan objek.

"Paling penting sekarang kita cuba padankan objek itu dengan MH370.

"Ini akan membantu mengecilkan kawasan carian dan mengesan lebih banyak objek dari pesawat itu," kata beliau.

Menurut beliau lagi Australia kini mengetuai usaha mencari dan menyelamat di selatan lautan itu, dan membahagikan kawasan pencarian kepada sektor timur dan barat.

Sementara itu Malaysia menyelia kerjasama antara negara dan agensi dalam membantu usaha mencari ini, katanya.

Dua hari lepas, Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak mengumumkan bukti-bukti sedia ada mencadangkan kedudukan terakhir MH370 di pertengahan Lautan Hindi, di sebelah Barat Perth, Australia. - mk





TUDM sangka MH370 diarah patah balik...


Kementerian Pertahanan menjelaskan, pasukan tentera tidak memintas pesawat misteri yang dikesan melalui ruang udara Selat Melaka kerana menyangka ia diarah berpatah balik oleh menara kawalan.

Timbalan Menteri Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri berkata, Tentera Udara Dirajay Malaysia mengesahkan bahawa pesawat itu tidak memberi ancaman, ketika ia dikesan oleh radar tentera pada jam 2.40 pagi.

Bagaimanapun, TUDM pada masa itu tidak memastikan bahawa pesawat berkenaan merupakan penerbangan MH370, yang kemudiannya gagal dikesan, katanya di Dewan Rakyat hari ini.


Alasan bodoh atau TUDM benar2 bodoh DALAM KES INI atau ada tgn GHAIB yang mengawal TUDM...?

Kedaulatan Negara terang2 tergugat kalau macam ni la punya gaya sistem pertahanan...Nampak sangat nak kelentong rakyat....f/bk

MH370: 122 objects spotted...

New satellite images taken three days ago have revealed 122 potential pieces of debris from the missing Malaysian Airline flight MH370, Malaysia’s Transport Minister says.

Hishammuddin Hussein revealed the latest - and largest - find of objects that may have come from the plane at a daily press briefing in Kuala Lumpur.

Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference that the images were captured by France-based Airbus Defence and Space on March 23.

Hishammuddin said new satellite images provided by France showed 122 potential objects in the southern Indian Ocean, about 2,557km from Perth.

They range in sized from 1m to 23m, he said. The images have been sent to Australia which is co-ordinating the seach in Perth.

They are the fourth set of satellite images to show potential debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in a remote part of the Indian Ocean roughly 2,500 km (1,550 miles) south west of Perth.

The objects are believed to be solid and range from one metre to 23 metres (three to 75 feet) long.


It is understood some pieces of debris are 'bright' but authorities have not confirmed whether they are from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.



"It must be emphasized that we cannot tell whether the potential objects are from MH370," he said.

He pointed out that Malaysia has been sent for four separate satellite leads from Australia, China and France.

Earlier satellite images from China, Australia and France showed items floating in the southern Indian Ocean, where the plane is believed to have crashed, leaving no survivors.

“Yesterday, on the 25th of March, the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency, MRSA, received new satellite images from Airbus Defence and Space, which is based in France, and these images were taken on the 23rd of March,” he said this evening.



“MRSA analysed the images and in one area of the ocean, measuring some 400 square kilometres, were able to identify 122 potential objects.

“Some objects were one metre in length, other objects were as much as 23 metres in length. Some of the objects appeared to be bright, possibly indicating solid material.”

The news comes as weather is again threatening to disrupt the international armada of planes and ships searching the southern Indian Ocean for debris from the missing plane.

There are predictions of gales and thunderstorms in the search zone.

Six countries are involved in the operation - Australia, New Zealand, the US, Japan, China and South Korea - after MH370 vanished on March 8, with 239 people on board, including six Australians.

MH370 legal action begins.

A US law firm says it has started “multi-million dollar’’ proceedings against Malaysia Airlines and Boeing over flight MH370, in what could mark the start of an expensive legal battle over the lost plane.

Chicago-based Ribbeck Law Chartered International said today it filed a court petition in the US state of Illinois on Tuesday, seeking documents pertaining to possible design or mechanical defects or conduct by the airline that may have led to the disaster.

“We believe that both defendants named are responsible for the disaster of flight MH370,” the firm said in a statement released in Kuala Lumpur.

“It is extremely important for the victims we represent that all responsible parties are brought to justice without exceptions,’’ the statement said, quoting its head of aviation litigation Monica Kelly.

The “petition for discovery’’ filed on Tuesday seeks potential evidence from the opposing party in any lawsuit.

The law firm said families “have initiated a multi-million dollar litigation process’’, but did not specify how much in damages may be sought in the future.

The legal action was filed on behalf of Januari Siregar, “a lawyer who lost his son in the terrible crash’’, the firm said. It gave no further details on the plaintiff.


“We must find what caused the aircraft to crash and demand that the problems with the airline and the aircraft’s design and manufacturing are immediately resolved to avoid future tragedies,” Kelly said.


The US Navy has sent a device to Perth to help find the jet's black box of flight and cockpit voice data, along with a robotic underwater vehicle.

But its deployment may have to be delayed, with warnings of potentially damaging weather conditions in the southern Indian Ocean.

“We've mentioned the possibility of gale force winds and thunderstorms. These conditions are markedly worse than those of today,” a Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said.

“At the moment, the forecast is suggesting poor conditions tomorrow.”

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority will make a determination on the search activity later today. - the western australia
