Kula Lumpur (VNA) – Malaysia said on July 14 that pieces of debris
found in Seychelles – a country in the Indian Ocean are not from missing flight
MH370, which vanished in March 2014 on its way from Kula Lumpur to Beijing with
239 people on board.

Seychelles authorities announced on July 13 the discovery of two pieces of
debris washed up on an island that seemed to be from an aircraft and it had
notified Malaysia. However, Malaysia said that the debris was not from the
plane after contacting the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority for more

According to Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, director general of Malaysia’s Department
of Civil Aviation, the MH370 investigation team carried out assessment and
confirmed that the debris was not from a Boeing 777 or Rolls Royce engine of
the MH370 airplane.

Malaysia Airlines’ Flight MH370 has become one of the world’s greatest aviation
mysteries. The governments of Malaysia, Australia and China halted the search
for the missing plane in January this year after spending over 140 million USD
on it but gaining no result yet.

The airplane is believed to have gone down in the Indian Ocean. Various pieces
of debris have been collected from Indian Ocean islands and Africa’s east coast
and at least three of them have been confirmed as coming from the missing
Boeing 777.-VNA
