MH370: Amid wait for plane part analysis, islanders search for more debris

The discovery of debris on the island of Reunion, a French territory in the Indian Ocean, has raised fresh hope that one of aviation's greatest mysteries may one day be solved -- the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. An international team of aviation experts is trying to determine whether this airplane part came from Flight 370, which disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board.

French police officers carry the plane debris on Wednesday, July 29. Experts say the metallic object may be a piece of a moving wing surface, known as a flaperon, from a Boeing 777.
