The confusion and frustration that have punctuated the investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 erupted anew Thursday, after officials offered conflicting levels of confidence on whether a piece of a wing found washed up on an Indian Ocean island last week came from the vanished plane.Officials believe it crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 people on board, but the reasons why remain elusive.Najib would also want to stamp his authority on the search for Flight 370, which Malaysia oversees, Tapsell said, rather than allow France to dominate attention through its leading role in examining the wing fragment.A U.S. official familiar with the investigation said the flaperon clearly is from a Boeing 777 . Australia, which has sent an official to France to help examine the flaperon, has said the find will not affect its sonar search of a 120,000-square-kilometer (46,000-square-mile) expanse of seabed more than 4,000 kilometers (2,500 miles) east of Reunion Island.It won't fully solve the mystery of why the plane disappeared, nor will it help pinpoint where the plane crashed.A six-week air and sea search covering 4.6 million square kilometers (1.8 million square miles) of the southern Indian Ocean surface early last year failed to find any trace of the jetliner.
