Malaysian Airlines: Debris found in ocean not from missing jet

For more than two days the rescue and search teams have been leading a desperate mission to locate the missing flight MH370

The found by search teams is reportedly not from the Malaysian Airlines' passenger jet that vanished an hour after take off from last week.

An official from Vietnam's National Committee for Search and Rescue said that they had received information from a Vietnamese plane saying that they found two broken objects, which seem like those of an aircraft, located about 80 kilometres to the southwest of Tho Chu Island.

However, Malaysian authorities have dismissed them saying any debris found so far was not part of the missing airliner, news.com.au reports.

For more than two days the rescue and search teams have been leading a desperate mission to locate the missing flight MH370, with suspicions ranging from a crash and hijack to bomb explosion.

According to the report, after Malaysian authorities dismissed the debris belonging to the aircraft, the investigators were now probing whether the plane attempted to turn back in the last moments before it vanished enroute to Beijing.

The search team and the intelligence agencies, including the FBI, have been focusing on two passengers who reportedly boarded the aircraft with stolen passports.

Director-General of Malaysia's Civil Aviation body, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, said that they weren't ruling out any possibility of a hijack, however their main concern was to focus their efforts to find the missing aircraft, the report added.
