The objects were spotted in waters roughly 2,500 kilometres southwest of Perth, Kyodo and Jiji news agencies said.

Japan's Cabinet Satellite Intelligence Centre's study showed objects up to eight metres in length and four metres wide in images captured by a satellite between 9 am and 3 pm (local time) Wednesday, Kyodo said.

A government source said they could be wreckage of the missing plane since they were found in an area overlapping the sites where debris had previously been spotted, according to the agency.

Jiji quoted a government official as saying the floating objects were "highly likely" to be part of the plane.

Japan had handed the information to Malaysia, the reports said.
