SEOUL - Three South Korean satellites have searched for debris of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, with four photos of possible wreckage taken by one of the satellites late last month, the local aerospace institute said Friday.

The state-funded Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) said on its website that Arirang-2 multipurpose satellite took four images of floating objects possibly related to the Boeing 777 plane in waters around 2,000 km southwest of Perth, Australia on March 26.

The KARI said that its multipurpose satellites, including Arirang-2, Arirang-3 and Arirang-5, have conducted search operations since March 10 for the wreckage of the missing plane, noting that they will continue search mission.
