The analysis put together suggests that the Boeing 777 was potentially deliberately downed, the source further added.

The mystery surrounding the fate of MH370 will only be solved by the foreign investigators who have found and are trying to piece together the airplane part that washed up on the shore of Reunion Island, believed to have come from the doomed flight.
Based on a part number that was visible in pictures, Boeing workers believe it came from a 777, the same type of plane as MH370, according to a US official.
After the discovery of the part of plane, a worker found a tattered piece of luggage on the same beach. The origin of the piece of luggage has not been determined, but it was seized by local police for examination.
An airplane part, believed to be a "flaperon, is being treated as the main lead in the new findings related to MH370.

Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said, "If this wreckage is from MH370, it's an important breakthrough, particularly for families." "The families who have been involved with this long, long, long, long wait, for them to have some degree of closure would be great comfort."
