Material on Australian shore examined in Flight 370 hunt
PERTH, Australia (AP) - Authorities say unidentified material that washed ashore in southwestern Australia is being examined for any link to the lost Malaysian plane.
The search coordination center said Wednesday evening that police secured the material that washed ashore 10 kilometers (6 miles) east of Augusta in Western Australia. Its statement did not describe the material found.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is examining photographs to assess whether further investigation is needed and if the material is relevant to Flight MH370.
Augusta is near Australia's southwestern tip about 310 kilometers (190 miles) from Perth, where the search has been headquartered.
