More debris found with possible MH370 link: Australia


SYDNEY: Three new pieces of debris have been found in Mauritius and in Mozambique that could be linked to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Australia’s transport minister said Thursday. The fate of the passenger jet, which is presumed to have crashed at sea after disappearing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board in March 2014, remains a mystery. Five other fragments have previously been found and identified as definitely or probably from the Boeing 777. All of them were discovered thousands of kilometers (miles) from the current underwater search zone far off Western Australia’s coast, where three ships carrying sophisticated equipment are scouring the sea floor for traces of the plane. Transport Minister Darren Chester said two of the new pieces were found in Mauritius, with the other in Mozambique and were “of interest in connection to the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.”
