Australia has released satellite images it says show 12 “probably man-made” objects floating in the sea near the suspected crash site of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Taken two weeks after MH370 disappeared on 8 March 2014, the photos were analysed by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB). Its researchers used drift modelling of the debris to suggest a new potential location for the crash site — a 5,000 sq km (1930 sq miles) area just north of the former search zone . . . the tantalising new information will reignite pressure to locate the passenger plane that vanished with 239 people aboard, one of aviation’s greatest mysteries.

This information was obtained by French military satellites and analysed by the Australians almost 3 1/2 years ago. Yet in none of the news media reporting this fact have I found any that asks the first questions I'd have thought any rational person would have posed: Why wait all that time to release it - and why spend years searching in the area immediately below this site but not the site itself?
