Beijing : China has released three satellite images showing possible debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane in the South China sea. 

The images were obtained by the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence on Sunday.

They showed three suspected floating objects, the biggest one as large as 24 by 22 meters. The others sized 13 by 18 meters, 14 by 19 meters, state television reported. 

The objects were observed in waters between Malaysia and Vietnam. All previous reports of debris since Flight MH-370 disappeared have proved to be unrelated to the plane.

Some 10 Chinese satellites have been used to help the search and rescue operation.

Search enters the sixth day today looking for clues of the missing plane carrying 239 passengers and crew including 154 Chinese and five Indians.

Forty-two ships and 39 aircraft from difference countries have been deployed so far in the hunt for the Boeing 777-200 plane.

It vanished early Saturday on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing after losing contact with air traffic control in waters between Malaysia and Vietnam.
