Australian and Chinese search crews trawling the Indian Ocean for signs of missing Flight 370 continued to pull debris from the waters over the weekend. However, they've yet to definitively link any of the recovered items to the plane, with Australian Navy Commodore Peter Leavy saying there has been no "discrete debris associated with the flight."

Close to a dozen ships, joined by 10 aircraft, are now searching off the coast of Perth, Australia. The Malaysian government last week announced it had concluded the plane crashed into the ocean somewhere in that vicinity, killing everyone on board. But bad weather has since hindered the search effort, and floating ocean junk has a few times been mistaken for signs of a the wreckage.
