SECOND PLANE DEBRIS FOUND IN MOZAMBIQUE DUE TO ARRIVE IN KL THIS WEEK

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia The second piece of debris, possibily belonging to the vanished Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370 aircraft, which was found in Mozambique three months ago is expected to arrive here this week.

Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said the debris would be sent to Australia, together with the first piece which arrived here last Thursday for verification process.

Recently, Reuters news agency reported that a family from South Africa handed over the debris, believed to be from MH370, to the South African civil aviation authorities.

“They took back the debris to their country (South Africa). The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) has been in contact with the South African authorities on this matter to arrange for them to take custody of the debris,” he told reporters after launching the i-Star Internship programme at Kolej Universiti Tuanku Abdul Rahman (KUTAR) here Monday.

Last Thursday, a metre-long, white-coloured piece of debris arrived in the country, believed to be the horizontal stabiliser of a Boeing 777 which was found on a sandbar between Mozambique and Madagascar by an American man early this month.

On March 8, 2014, Flight MH370 was en route to Beijing from the KL International Airport with 239 passengers and crew when it vanished from the radar.

Its flight path was believed to have ended in the southern Indian Ocean.
