Wing part found in Tanzania likely to from MH370

Sydney, July 29 (IANS) A wing part found in Tanzania is likely to be from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Australian authorities said on Friday.

Experts will continue to “assess what information can be determined” though it is “almost certainly” from the Boeing 777, Xinhua news agency quoted an Australian official as saying in a statement.

The official, however, said the piece was not enough to expand the search as its location was consistent with drift modelling affirming the current search area in the southern Indian Ocean.

China, Malaysia and Australia have confirmed the current search will be suspended once the remaining 10,000 sq km was combed, unless credible new evidence emerges of the plane’s crash site.

“We remain hopeful that the aircraft will be located in the remaining search area,” Chester said.

The Beijing-bound Malaysian Airlines flight disappeared soon after taking off from Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014, with 239 persons on board.
