A piece of metal found on a Mozambique beach is possibly from a Malaysia Airlines plane that went missing en route from from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014.
The location of the metre-long fragment is said to be consistent with models of where ocean drifts could carry debris.
If confirmed it will be the second piece to wash up on a beach. Last year a section of the plane’s wing was found off Reunion Island.
Despite an extensive deep water search led by Australia, flight MH370 and all 239 people on board have never been found.
Based on satellite communications data, the plane is thought to have crashed in the Indian Ocean. As to why the aircraft came down experts are still unsure.
