Possible Plane Debris Found In The Maldives

Malaysia’s government said Monday that debris has been found in the Maldives and that it will send a team to the Indian Ocean island nation to determine whether it came from a plane, possibly from Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

But Malaysia’s Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said it was premature to speculate whether the debris found in the Maldives is connected to the doomed flight. Meanwhile the search was continuing on the French island of Reunion. Local municipal workers combed the island’s eastern shore, hefting bags they filled with whatever they found: old cloth, part of a tire, plastic bottles and other objects they found washed up on the rocks and sand.
