Further fueling hope that search crews were at last zeroing in on the location of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Malaysian authorities on Sunday said newly obtained French satellite images may show debris form the plane in the Indian Ocean. That finding came shortly after China and Australia each announced that they'd found potential signs of wreckage in the same vicinity. "It's still too early to be definite," Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, whose nation is leading the search in the area, said. "But obviously we have now had a number of very credible leads and there is increasing hope — no more than hope, no more than hope — that we might be on the road to discovering what happened to this ill-fated aircraft." The plane went missing a little more than two weeks ago, on March 8, with 239 people aboard.
