More clues point to a catastrophic event on MH 370 as Australia says a piece of curved debris found on a Mauritian island, is to be forensically examined under laboratory conditions, to see if it is part of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
A hotelier on the island who recovered the debris pointed to a code number stencilled on the piece and claimed that Boeing sent phone pictures of the markings said it was from a triple seven and appeared to be from the inside of the fuselage.
When confirmed, it would be the first piece of interior debris to be recovered.
Flight MH370 disappeared from radar screens in March 2014 on a routine scheduled flight between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing, carrying 239 passengers.
Despite an extensive searches, led by Australia, the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, its passengers and crew remain missing.
