CNN producer Jason Morrell shared on Twitter images of the debris found in Mozambique and footage of the man who discovered it:

The Australian Joint Agency Coordination Center told the media that it is aware of the discovery, but is waiting for more information before making any comment. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai also said that while there is a possibility it could be from a Boeing 777, the debris must be analyzed and verified.

The timing of the possible discovery is uncanny. Not only has it been almost two years since the plane and the 239 passengers and crew onboard went missing on March 8, 2014, but it also comes as the search for the missing flight continues on its final leg.
