Malaysia is “almost certain” that plane debris found on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean is from a Boeing 777, the deputy transport minister said on Thursday, heightening the possibility it could be wreckage from missing Flight MH370.
Malaysia Airlines was operating a Boeing 777 on the ill-fated flight, which vanished without a trace in March last year while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in one of the most baffling mysteries in aviation history. The plane was carrying 239 passengers and crew.
Search efforts led by Australia have focused on a broad expanse of the southern Indian Ocean off Australia, roughly 3,700 km (2,300 miles) from France’s Reunion Island.
There have been four serious accidents involving 777s in the 20 years since the widebody jet came into service. Only MH370 is thought to have crashed south of the equator.
France’s BEA air crash investigation agency said it was examining the debris, found washed up on Reunion Island east of Madagascar on Wednesday, in coordination with Malaysian and Australian authorities, but that it was too early to draw conclusions.

Recently, the Financial Times reported that the trend of US residents choosing to move abroad has consistently risen since 2008.
Dubai has trumped London as the most popular city among Americans looking for jobs overseas, research by Aetna International, a global health benefits provider, has found.
Since January 2013, Dubai has been the most sought-after location among US citizens searching for jobs abroad. This moves Europe's financial centre, London, to second place after topping the list since 2006.
Aetna International has been tracking Google Trends data for the world's 40 largest countries and their capitals since 2006.
Caroline Pain, marketing director, Aetna International, said: "Compared with 2006, US citizens appear to be considering a far broader range of countries than ever before when it comes to working abroad. Dubai has now overtaken London as the most popular city for Americans looking for jobs overseas. It's also interesting to see Paris becoming the third most-searched global city, pushing Singapore down the table."

Aref Al Ramli, head, Electronic Business and Innovation, Mashreq Bank, demostrates the use of Emirates ID to withdraw cash while Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, Mashreq CEO (second from right), and Saeed Abdullah Al Ghafli, Director-General, Emirates ID Authority (extreme right), look on.Mashreq Bank customers can now open accounts, pay their bills, update their personal information and withdraw and deposit cash by just showing their Emirates Identity card.
Mashreq has become the first UAE bank to fully integrate its ATM systems with the Emirates Identity Authority.
Now, when using a Mashreq ATM, the customer's existing bank cards will appear on the ATM screen, allowing them to choose from a number of options including cash withdrawal, local and international transfers and cheque book and statement requests.
Additionally, the new feature will allow customers to instantly update their passport and visa details to the bank without having to visit a branch. According to Mashreq, the move will also eliminate 70 per cent of current data entry processes when joining the bank, as an Emirates ID reader will instantly record personal information into the bank's electronic forms, ensuring the accuracy of data and preventing unnecessary rejections during new account openings.
Mashreq CEO Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair said the move is in line with the UAE's shift towards nationwide "smart" infrastructure, spearheaded by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Hakika maradhi ya CCM yametoa dalili kubwa na za kutisha. Haijapata kutokea jamii ya kitanzania achilia mbali wanachama wa CCM ikashuhudia usaliti, dharau na kiburi cha hali ya juu kilichojitokeza katika chama kama hiki kilichoshuhudiwa katika mchakato ulioishia na kuteuliwa kwa Dk. John Magufuli na umati kukatwa japo mmoja ndio inaonekana alisikia uchungu zaidi ya wenziwe.
Katika makala hii nitajaribu kufafanua ni nini hasa kilipelekea CCM ikaugua kiasi hiki? Pia nitajaribu kupendekeza tiba ya kila ugonjwa kwa kadri ntakavyojaliwa. Kwa kawaida ili mtu aambukizwe ugonjwa lazima akosee masharti ya afya bora. Lazima afanye kosa. Ni wachache sana wanaambukizwa bila kufanya kosa au kukiuka kanuni za afya bora.
