KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysia's defense minister says a Chinese satellite has spotted a large object along a broad stretch of ocean where officials hope to find a Malaysia Airlines plane that has been missing for more than two weeks.

Hishammuddin Hussein told reporters Saturday that he had been informed that a Chinese satellite had spotted an object 22.5 meters (74 feet) by 13 meters (43 feet).

He said, "The news that I just received is that the Chinese ambassador received a satellite image of a floating object in the southern corridor and they will be sending ships to verify."

He said he had no other information and that China would release further details. It was not immediately clear whether the object was seen near where another satellite found two objects earlier this week.
