“High possibility” debris from MH370 plane type

One-metre-long piece of metal found on Mozambique sandbank
Malaysia’s transport minister says there is a “high possibility” that debris discovered in Mozambique came from the same plane model as the missing MH370.
The one-metre-long piece of metal was found on a sandbank at the weekend, the BBC reported. Australia says the location is consistent with models of where ocean drifts could have carried the debris since the plane disappeared in March 2014.
This month it will be two years since MH370 disappeared while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, carrying 239 passengers.
Malaysia’s transport minister Liow Tiong Lai said on Twitter that based on early reports, there was a “high possibility debris found in Mozambique belongs to a B777”. But he cautioned: “I urge everyone to avoid undue speculation as we are not able to conclude that the debris belongs to MH370 at this time.”
Malaysian aviation teams are working to retrieve the debris in conjunction with their Australian counterparts.
