Malaysia said Thursday that satellite images of suspected debris from a missing jet were yet another false lead, and debunked a report the plane had flown on for hours after losing contact – leaving the nearly week-old mystery no closer to being solved.China had sparked talk of a breakthrough in the riddle of the Malaysia Airlines jet with satellite images of three large floating objects near where flight 370 with 239 people on board lost contact Saturday, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.But Vietnamese and Malaysian planes that searched the area in the South China Sea Thursday found no sign of wreckage of the Boeing 777, which has one of the best safety records of any jet.Adding to the confusion, the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. investigators suspected the plane flew for four hours after its last known contact with air traffic control at 1:30 a.m. Malaysian time, based on data automatically sent from its Rolls-Royce engines.Malaysia denied the report as "inaccurate".The search for the plane now encompasses both sides of peninsular Malaysia, over an area of nearly 27,000 nautical miles (more than 90,000 square kilometers) and involves the navies and air forces of multiple nations.
