  • Debris discovery may not lead to MH370

    While wreckage found on a remote Indian Ocean island has encouraged authorities in their search for MH370, the federal government has cautioned the discovery won't necessarily lead to finding the aircraft. Debris washed up on La Reunion has been sent to France for analysis and authorities are "increasingly confident" the two-metre piece of wreckage will provide the first tangible proof that the plane, which disappeared almost 17 months ago while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, is laying at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. The wreckage was being flown to a testing site near Toulouse, and could reach there by Saturday.
