Malaysian PM con­firms air­plane de­bris is from MH370 wreck­age

The China Post - - INTERNATIONAL -

De­bris found on a re­mote is­land a week ago is from flight MH370, Malaysia’s prime min­is­ter said Thurs­day, con­firm­ing that the plane which mys­te­ri­ously dis­ap­peared 17 months ago met a tragic end in the In­dian Ocean.

“To­day, 515 days since the plane dis­ap­peared, it is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you that an in­ter­na­tional team of ex­perts has con­clu­sively con­firmed that the air­craft de­bris found on Re­union Is­land is in­deed from MH370,” Na­jib Razak told re­porters.

French pros­e­cu­tors used more cau­tious lan­guage, say­ing only there was a “very high prob­a­bil­ity” the wreck­age came from MH370. “We now have phys­i­cal ev­i­dence that, as I an­nounced on 24th March last year, flight MH370 trag­i­cally ended in the south­ern In­dian Ocean,” Na­jib said.

Malaysia’s trans­port min­is­ter says the main­te­nance records of Malaysia Air­lines prove con­clu­sively that the wing part found last week on an In­dian Ocean is­land be­longed to the miss­ing Flight 370.
