Signals may be from missing jet, official says

Head of search calls discovery ‘most promising’

“Clearly this is a most promising lead,” the investigator, Angus Houston, said at a news conference from Perth, Australia. But he added that it might take some days to confirm that the acoustic noises were from the missing plane.
