London, July 30: Malaysia has sent a team to the French Indian Oceanisland of Reunion to test the debris to determine whether it is from the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. According to the BBC, aviation experts have said the debris looks like a wing component from a 777, known as a flaperon.

The two-metre-long piece of debris washed up on the island, about 600km east of Madagascar, late on Wednesday. Malasyian Airlines authorities said that it would be “premature” to speculate on its origin. (READ: Australia-led MH370 search to be called off in 2016)
