The wing fragment that washed ashore last week on a remote Indian Ocean beach is a piece of the Malaysia Airlines jetliner that disappeared under mysterious circumstances more than 16 months ago, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Wednesday.

“The international team of experts have conclusively confirmed that the aircraft debris found on Reunion Island is indeed from MH370,” Najib said in a statement. Malaysia Airlines issued a statement calling the confirmation “a major breakthrough” in the search for the plane.
