Plastic Malaysian water bottles latest debris to wash ashore Reunion Island

AS each day passes, it becomes more and more likely that debris washing ashore Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean is in fact that of doomed Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.

Three plastic water bottles – one of which was from Taiwan and the others from Malaysia – were on Saturday found washed up on the same beach where a Boeing 777’s two-metre-long flaperon surfaced on Thursday.



A local lawyer who found the bottles posted a photo of his find on social media and on Monday handed them to local police.

They are now being investigated for possible links to the missing airliner, which vanished without a trace with 239 passengers and crew on boardnshortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing, on March 8 last year.

There has been an increase in foreign material washing up along the Island’s coastline over the last week, including a torn suitcase found on the same beach as the flaperon, along with a Chinese water bottle and medication container.
