The Australian Maritime Safety Authority is now holding a news conference on the search for the missing flight.

The international search and recovery operation for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 resumed on Friday, after being temporarily suspended due to bad weather a day earlier. The air search of the southern Indian Ocean involves nine military aircraft from six nations and a civil aircraft acting as a communications relay in the search area. A total of five ships, four from China and one from Australia, have also been tasked to Friday's search.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said Friday that the search area for the flight has been updated after a new credible lead emerged. The search will shift to an area 1,100 kilometers to the northeast. The Australian maritime rescue authorities said the new search area is approximately 319,000 square kilometers and around 1,850 kilometers west of Perth.

On Thursday, Japan's Kyodo News reported that a Japanese satellite spotted objects that may be from missing Flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean. And a Thai space research agency said in an on-line statement that a Thai satellite has detected around 300 floating objects that span an area of 450 square kilometers in the Indian Ocean, about 2,700 kilometers from Perth, Australia.
