Australian Prime Minister confident about pings; search area narrowed

Posted: Updated:
PERTH, Australia -

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says "we are very confident" the signals heard are coming from Flight 370's black boxes. 

Search crews hunting for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have zeroed in on a more targeted area in the Indian Ocean in their search for the source of sounds they believe could be coming from the flight's flight data and cockpit voice recorders.

Abbott also says search crews are getting into the stage where signals coming from the black boxes are starting to fade.  The batteries are designed to last around 30 days.  The flight vanished March 8.

The plane's black boxes are vital and may contain the answers to why MA flight 370 lost communications and disappeared.
