MH370: Debris found off Mozambique likely to be from plane

Debris recovered from the African nation of Mozambique is highly likely to have come from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, the Australian Government has confirmed.

The flight disappeared with 239 passengers and crew on board, shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur two years ago.

Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester said the Malaysian investigation team has finished its examination of the two pieces of debris.

In a statement, Mr Chester said that both pieces of debris were consistent with panels from a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft.

"The analysis has concluded the debris is almost certainly from MH370," Mr Chester said.
