PERTH, Australia (AP) - Australian officials moved the search area for the lost Malaysian jetliner 1,100 kilometers (680 miles) to the northeast Friday following a new analysis of radar data, and planes quickly found multiple objects in the new zone.
 
Five out of 10 aircraft hunting for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 found objects of various colors Friday, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. It said it was not clear whether the objects were from the plane, and photos of them would be analyzed overnight.
 
AMSA said the objects included two that were blue and grey - among the colors of the missing airplane. A Chinese patrol ship in the area will attempt to locate the objects on Saturday, it said.
