Search for debris of MH370 in Reunion Island called off

Baku, August 18, AZERTAC

The search for more debris from missing Malaysian Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 in the Reunion Island was called off yesterday (Monday), according to BERNAMA.

The police and the army on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion stopped their search after failing to yield any discovery.

"Ten days of searching involving an army plane, two helicopters and a police speedboat have not found any more wreckage. Washed-up objects, including water bottles, have been passed on to investigators in case they can be linked to the plane," the police said in the report.

However, according to the Reuters report, the team would continue to be vigilant if there was any possibility of a discovery.

On August 6, international experts confirmed that the flaperon found on the French Reunion Island last month was from Flight MH370 - supporting an earlier conclusion that the Malaysia Airlines plane crashed into the Indian Ocean almost 17 months ago.

On August 12, the Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) confirmed that the aircraft wing part was from the vanished MH370.

MH370 went missing while enroute to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8 last year. There were 239 passengers and crew on board.
