Officials are examining a piece of airplane debris found over the weekend on the shores of Tanzania, trying to determine if it is linked to missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
Various news outlets, including Reuters, reported the news.
MH370 disappeared more than two years ago after taking off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing. The plane made an abrupt turn almost 180 degrees off course and is believed to have crashed in the Indian Ocean. Several pieces of debris have been found since the March, 2014, disappearance, most notably a wing flaperon discovered off Reunion Island last summer that was positively identified as being from MH370.
Malaysia’s transport minister is being cautious, however, with this new piece of debris.
"This debris is quite large... only if it is confirmed to be that of Boeing 777 will we send an investigation team there to study whether it really belonged to MH370 or not," Liow Tiong Lai was quoted as saying.
MH370 was a Boeing 777.
Tanzania is roughly 1,700 miles from Reunion Island in the same general area of the southern Indian Ocean.
