Still, China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense has announced that its satellites "observed a suspected crash area at sea," which included the "three suspected floating objects and their sizes," according to CNN.
The images show the three suspected floating objects sized (in meters) 13x18, 14x19 and 24 x22. It falls near the area of last transmission, not far from the path the airliner had been traveling on while en route to Beijing.
Beijing has grown frustrated with Malaysian authorities for its lack of progress and has expanded resources dedicated to finding the missing aircraft. Beijing on Monday urged the Malaysian government to “step up search efforts.”
“We have a responsibility to demand and urge the Malaysian side to step up search efforts, start an investigation as soon as possible and provide relevant information to China correctly and in a timely manner,” said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang.
Chinese Weibo users also mocked the Malaysian government’s recruitment of a shaman, who had said, "I think the plane is still in the air or has crashed into the sea.”
