The Malaysian Minister of Transportation, Liow Tiong Lai, said on Wednesday he has sent a team to investigate what is believe to be aircraft debris found near Reunion Island to see if it belongs to MH370.

Speaking in New York, Lai said he hopes that the piece of debris can be identified quickly.

Air safety investigators have a "high degree of confidence" that a photo of aircraft debris found in the Indian Ocean is of a wing component unique to the Boeing 777, the same model as the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared last year.

The two-metre-long debris, which appears to be a piece of a wing, was found by employees of an association cleaning the area and handed over to the air transport brigade of the French gendarmerie (BGTA), who have opened an investigation. An air safety expert did not exclude it could be a part of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which went missing in the Indian Ocean on March 8, 2014.
