Wreckage prompts Reunion locals to comb island for plane debris

From Morning Report, 6:14 am on 3 August 2015

Another piece of wreckage has washed up on the shores of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, prompting locals to comb the small island for signs of plane debris. One object discovered south of the city of St Denis was thought to have been part of a door, but Malaysia's Director General of Civil Aviation Azharuddin Abdul Rahman says it was just a domestic ladder. Part of a wing came ashore, which has been sent to France for identification, but Malaysia's already confirming that it WAS part of Boeing triple-seven. It's led to the widespread belief that it belongs to MH370, the Malaysian airliner that disappeared last year with 239 people on board.
