March 26 (UPI) -- Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammudin Hussein said in a press conference that new satellite images have spotted 122 objects possibly related to Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

Hussein said that Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency received satellite images from Airbus Defense and Space in France that were taken on March 23, and they reveal new debris possibly connected to the missing plane.

"MRSA analyzed the images and in one area of the ocean, measuring some 400 square kilometers, we were able to identify 122 potential objects," reported Hussein.

He added that the objects ranged in length from 1 meter to 23 meters with several objects appearing to be bright, perhaps indicating they are solid material.

The objects were spotted approximately 2,557 kilometers from Perth, Australia, where the plane is suspected to have crashed.
