Malaysia says two pieces of debris are ‘almost certainly’ from missing Flight 370
Malaysia’s government says two more pieces of debris, discovered in South Africa and Rodrigues Island off Mauritius, are “almost certainly” from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which mysteriously disappeared two years ago with 239 people on board.
The announcement means a total of five pieces of debris from the the jet have been discovered in various spots around the Indian Ocean since it vanished on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing.
In March, investigators confirmed two pieces of debris found along Mozambique’s coast were almost certainly from the aircraft. Last year, a wing part from the plane washed ashore on France’s Reunion Island.
Flight 370 is believed to have crashed in a remote stretch of the southern Indian Ocean, but a search has found nothing so far.
