The second day of an international search for a missing Malaysian airliner has ended without any sighting of debris in the southern Indian Ocean.

Australian officials say the operation is due to restart tomorrow with extra vessels joining the search.

Five aircraft took part in today’s search for flight MH370, which vanished on March 8 with 239 people on board.

Satellite images have revealed objects possibly related to the plane in waters far south-west of Western Australia.

Experts have warned that the searchers face extremely treacherous seas and that a recovery operation would be very dangerous.

Flight MH370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it lost contact with air traffic controllers and disappeared from radar.
