Malaysia’s prime minister says debris found on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion is to be transported to France to find out whether it is from the missing airliner MH370.

According to BBC News, Najib Razak said initial reports suggest the two-meter long wreckage is very likely to be from a Boeing 777.

Mr. Najib said French authorities were taking the debris to the southern French city of Toulouse – the site of the nearest office of the French body responsible for air accident investigations (the BEA) – to verify it as quickly as possible.

The Malaysia Airlines flight – a Boeing 777 – vanished while travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014. There were 239 people on board the plane when it went missing.
