Vietnamese authorities say a rectangular object has been spotted in the waters off Vietnam where a search is underway for a Malaysia Airlines jetliner. The object was seen by a low-flying plane in the same area where oil slicks were spotted yesterday.

Civil administration chief Pham Viet Dung said search teams from Vietnam and other countries were asked to send boats to the area to examine the object. Authorities said earlier that they had spotted an orange object in the area that turned out not to be from the aircraft.
