From Rediff today:

Malaysia confirms that the Debris found in Tanzania is from MH370.

Extract:

Quote:
A large piece of debris discovered on the island of Pemba, off the coast of Tanzania, in June was from the missing Malaysia Airlines jet MH370. ..The debris, an outboard flap, will be examined further to see if it can yield any insight into the circumstances around the missing plane, the Malaysian transport minister, Liow Tiong Lai, said.

Investigators have previously confirmed a piece of plane debris found on the French island of Runion in July 2015 as being part of the MH370.


They are examining several other pieces of debris found in Mozambique, South Africa and Rodrigues Island, a territory of Mauritius.

Is MH370 going to be the same case as that of Emelia Earhart ?. Looks like the Malaysian Govt is keen on coming out of this episode ASAP fearing huge compensation.
Emelia's case was a different one considering that she went missing in 1937 when search methodologies were not upto the mark.
But what about MH370 ?

The Search For Flight MH370 Officially Comes To An End.

Quoting from the article :

Quote:
Today the last search vessel has left the underwater search area. Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has not been located in the 120,000 square-kilometer underwater search area in the southern Indian Ocean,” the statement read.
Quote:
“Today’s announcement is significant for our three countries, but more importantly for the family and friends of those on board the aircraft. We again take this opportunity to honor the memory of those who have lost their lives and acknowledge the enormous loss felt by their loved ones.”said the statement.
Quote:
“despite every effort using the best science available, cutting edge technology, as well as modeling and advice from highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search has not been able to locate the aircraft.”
Quote:
“the decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness”.
Quote:
“we remain hopeful that new information will come to light and that at some point in the future the aircraft will be located”.

There is a news that the search authorities have turned down FOI request (request for information) about the search operations stating that it could “cause damage to the international relations of the Commonwealth”.

How shall this be interpreted?

this is the normal 'whumf' given out when they wish to keep quiet. Remember India did the same umpteen number of times on the Netaji issue, and elsewhere. Let us wait and see what emerges. Modern media is far smarter and intrusive.
