PERTH, Australia -- A New Zealand military plane has found objects in the Indian Ocean of the first day of searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in a new location, but officials say it will take until Saturday to determine whether they are related to the lost plane.
    
The search area moved 1,100 kilometers (680 miles) to the northeast on Friday, and one of the nine planes involved in the hunt found the objects, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said on Twitter.
    
AMSA says the find needed to be confirmed by a ship expected to arrive in the area Saturday.
