Meanwhile, Malaysia said on March 13 it dispatched an aircraft to investigate the site where Chinese satellites photographed three 'suspected floating objects', near an area where several nations have been hunting for wreckage from a missing passenger plane. Vietnam, whose southern coast had been the focus of the recovery effort, initially suspended its air and sea search on March 12 as it waited for Malaysia to clarify the new direction of the hunt.
