Washington - Malaysia's transport minister says a Malaysian team at the French territory of Réunion Island has collected other plane debris including a window and some aluminum foil.
But Liow Tiong Lai says he cannot confirm they belong to Flight 370, which went missing on March 8 2014 with 239 people on board. "I can only ascertain that it's plane debris."
Liow told reporters "there are many items collected" from the Indian Ocean island where a wing part was found last week, which was confirmed earlier on Thursday to be from Flight 370.

Liow said the new debris has been sent "to the French authorities for verification. I cannot confirm that it's from MH370."
Liow says Malaysia has asked authorities in neighboring areas including Mauritius and Madagascar to help comb their beaches for possible debris to widen the search.
