– Technical analysis showed that two pieces of debris found on a Mozambican beach were "almost certainly” from the missing flight MH370, Australia's transport minister Darren Chester said in a statement on March 24.

According to Chester, Australia’s national science body CSIRO concluded that they were consistent with panels from a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft.

Chester said the search for MH370 would continue, with 25,000 square kilometres of the targeted underwater area yet to be combed.

He noted that the Australian team is focusing on the search task and hopes to find the plane soon.

Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) announced on March 23 that Malaysia is working with South African authorities to examine another piece of debris discovered near Mossel Bay, a small town in the Western Cape province of South Africa. The object is suspected of being an engine cowling.

Mossel Bay lies over 2,000 kilometres away from Vilankulo resort in Inhambane province, Mozambique where one of the pieces being analysed in Australia was found.

Malaysian Airline Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with a total of 239 passengers and crew members on board.

Since then, a massive search led by Australia has been deployed in the southern Indian Ocean, where analysts say the aircraft ended its journey.

In July 2015, a wing fragment of MH370 was found on the French island of La Reunion in the Indian Ocean. It is the only confirmed fragment discovered so far.-VNA
