MH370 Search: 'High Possibility' Debris In Mozambique Is From A Boeing 777

It's been two years since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But clues to the plane's fate continue to surface.

Now a new piece of debris has washed up in Mozambique, and Malaysia's transport minister, Liow Tiong Lai, said Wednesday that there is a "high possibility" that it came from a Boeing 777, the same model as the missing jetliner.

He also emphasized that the findings had yet to be verified. He tweeted: "I urged everyone to avoid undue speculation as we are not able to conclude that the debris belongs to #mh370 at this time."

A statement from Australia's Minister for Transport and Infrastructure confirms that a "piece of metal, approximately one metre in length" was found. It added:

As The Associated Press reports:

Last summer, another piece of debris washed up on the French island of La Réunion in the Indian Ocean. More than a month after the wreckage was found, French investigators confirmed the hunk of metal was a wing fragment from the plane.

The plane's disappearance remains a mystery.
