Malaysia plane: Cyclone fear after China spots 'objects'

A Chinese plane hunting for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight has spotted "suspicious" objects, according to state media.

Searchers saw two "relatively big" objects with "many white smaller ones scattered within a radius of several kilometres", Xinhua news agency said.

Australia said it would try to locate the objects, but there are concerns a cyclone in the area could hamper efforts.
