KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia has received new satellite images showing a possible debris field with more than 100 objects in the Indian Ocean where a missing passenger plane is believed to have crashed, Transport Minister says. 

The images taken on March 23 by Airbus Defence and Space in France were analysed by the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency, which was "able to identify 122 potential objects" in an area measuring 400 square kilometres, Hishammuddin Hussein says.

"Some objects were a metre in length and others were as much as 23 metres in length," he added. "Some of the objects appear to be bright, possibly indicating solid material. The objects were located approximately 2,557 kilometres from Perth."
