Malaysian officials say that they found debris washed up on Reunion Island, which they believe to be airplane’s seat cushions and window panes, have been the same spot in the Indian Ocean where a wing fragment was found last week. The Malaysians say that fragment is from the missing Flight MH370; French investigators say they’re almost — but not quite — certain.
Malaysia Airlines issued a statement Thursday saying it had informed relatives of the 239 people who were aboard the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing that the wing section “was indeed from Flight MH370.”
However, the stream of conflicting information about their missing loved ones, has led some passengers’ families in China to protest, insisting that the whole thing is a sham, part of a cover-up.
” ‘We believe our loved ones are still alive,’ one family member told the press.
