Missing plane: 'Possible sighting' images released

Chinese authorities have published images of what they suggest may be three pieces of wreckage from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.

The website of China's State Administration of Science carries three satellite images taken on Sunday - a day after the plane went missing.

The images, which appear to show fragments in the sea, were only published on Wednesday. Co-ordinates alongside them would place the objects in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam.

The BBC's Sarah Campbell explains.
