SERI KEMBANGAN: A piece of plane debris found in Tanzania will be checked to determine if it is from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the fragment is believed to be the biggest piece of debris linked to the aircraft retrieved from the Indian Ocean so far.

"We have to first confirm if it belongs to a Boeing 777 airplane. If so, we will send a team to Tanzania to check further," he told reporters after opening the 9th Hui Zhou World Convention at Wisma Huazong here on Saturday.

Liow said earlier discoveries of several bags, including one with an "Angry Bird" picture, and other items found in Madagascar were not connected to MH370.

The flight with 227 passengers and 12 crew went missing en route to Beijing after taking off from KL International Airport in March, 2014.
