Flight 370: No debris where China’s satellite’s suggested

StevesNewTemplateMalaysia and Vietnam say there is no evidence of debris where images released by China suggest Malaysia Flight 370 may have gone down.

USA Today reports Chinese satellite images taken Sunday show three fragments in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam, in an area near the plane’s intended flight path.

The images were posted Wednesday on the website of China’s State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense.

The debris is described as “three floating objects” in the Strait of Malacca, a bit east of where the plane was supposed to be flying.

CNN said: “The Chinese agency gave coordinates of 105.63 east longitude, 6.7 north latitude, which would put it in waters northeast of where it took off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and south of Vietnam, near where the South China Sea meets the Gulf of Thailand.”

The Guardian reports no other governments have confirmed the debris. One U.S. defense official said American satellites had not located any sign of a crash.
