Satellite spots 122 possible objects in search
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Searchers may be closer to finding pieces of the missing Malaysian jetliner.
A top Malaysian official says a French satellite spotted a possible debris field containing 122 objects. It's in the same area where an Australian satellite and a Chinese satellite had earlier spotted objects -- in the southern Indian Ocean, far southwest of Australia.
A dozen planes and five ships are again hunting for the objects after seas calmed today. Nothing has been retrieved yet.
New data has narrowed the search zone, but it remains huge - an area estimated at 622,000 square miles, about the size of Alaska. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott calls it "the most inaccessible spot imaginable."
