Reunion debris from flight MH370

AFP

Debris found on an Indian Ocean island a week ago is from flight MH370, Malaysia's prime minister announced yesterday, confirming for the first time that the plane which mysteriously disappeared 17 months ago had crashed, reports AFP.
"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," Prime Minister Najib Razak told reporters.
The Malaysia Airlines jet disappeared on March 8 last year, inexplicably veering off course en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, sparking a colossal but ultimately fruitless multinational hunt for the aircraft.

Last week's discovery of a two-metre-long (almost seven-foot) wing part called a flaperon on the French island of La Reunion has provided the first glimmer of hope for relatives desperate for answers.
The part was examined at a military lab outside the city of Toulouse in the presence of French, Malaysian and Australian experts, Boeing employees and representatives from China -- the country that lost the most passengers in the disaster.
"We now have physical evidence that, as I announced on 24th March last year, flight MH370 tragically ended in the southern Indian Ocean," said Najib.
But next-of-kin, investigators, and the aviation industry are still left with the vexing question of what caused the plane to veer off course, flying for hours after its communications and tracking systems were shut off, in what remains one of the biggest mysteries in the history of aviation.
Najib gave no indication that the analysis of the debris yielded any clues into the cause of the disappearance.
"I would like to assure all those affected by this tragedy that the government of Malaysia is committed to do everything within our means to find out the truth of what happened," he said.
