It could be container, I don't know : Australia PM

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot said Friday the two objects spotted by satellite in a remote area of the southern Indian Ocean may not be related to the search of the missing Malaysia Airlines MH 370, reported CNN.

It could just be a container that has fallen off a ship," he said during a visit to Papua New Guinea. "We just don’t know."

Abbott was responding to a question from a journalist about whether he had "jumped the gun" Thursday by publicly announcing the discovery of the possible objects in satellite imagery and the decision to send search teams to investigate them.
