KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - The international search for a missing Malaysia Airlines plane is continuing in both the northern and southern "corridors" where it is believed most likely to have flown, Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told reporters on Thursday.

He was speaking after search aircraft and ships were sent to investigate two objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean off Australia that officials said could be debris from the jetliner missing for 12 days with 239 people on board.
