Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 missing

Editor's note: French officials said it may be a week or more before investigators determine whether a piece of debris found on the island of Réunion came from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, The New York Times reports. Based on photographs and video, U.S. officials have said the object likely came from a Boeing 777, and MH370 is the only known missing Boeing 777. However, Australian and Malaysian officials have cautioned it's too early to know for sure if the debris is from the missing aircraft, which vanished with 239 people aboard in March 2014. An aircraft engineer told The Times that photos suggest the found object "separated from the aircraft violently" and "it's pretty clear the aircraft didn't survive, it was completely destroyed." Australian officials say the ongoing search off Western Australia for the missing plane will continue. - Stephanie
