Malaysia PM Najib Razak has confirmed that debris found on Reunion Island is from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The debris from the wing of the Boeing 777 was found at the end of July washed ashore on the island off the coast of Madagascar. Investigators in France on 5 August began examining the wing flap.

The flight disappeared with 239 people on board in March 2014. It was set to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Razak said: "Today, 513 days since the plane disappeared, it is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you that an international team of experts has conclusively confirmed that the aircraft debris found on Réunion is indeed from MH370.

"We now have physical evidence that on 31 March last year, flight MH370 tragically ended in the south Indian ocean."
