Aircraft debris ‘almost certain’ from missing MH370

Kuala Lumpur, March 25 (IANS) The two pieces of debris found in Mozambique were “almost certainly” from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Malysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai has said.

“They (investigators) managed to verify that these two pieces of debris belong to Boeing 777 parts,” the Malaysian Star quoted the minister as saying.

“The paint and stencil on these two pieces are similar to MAS’ (Malaysia Airlines) paint, and also that they concluded that (the parts) are almost certainly (from) MH370,” Liow said.

Flight MH370 disappeared over the south Indian Ocean on March 8, 2014, with 239 people.

Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester had earlier said that following the analysis by experts probing the missing flight, the two pieces of debris found in Mozambique were “almost certainly from MH370”.

Liow also said the the Malaysian government had sent a team to South Africa to get another piece of possible MH370 debris found on its shore.

“We’re waiting for the South African authorities to give us the green light to retrieve the debris from Australia for further verification,” he said.

Some 120,000 sq.km of ocean area are currently being searched, which may end around June or July.
