A piece of wreckage that washed up on an island in the Indian Ocean is from a Boeing 777 -- the same type of aircraft as the long-missing MH370, Malaysian authorities said Sunday.

France and the United States identified the flaperon found on a Reunion Island beach as one from that particular type of Boeing, Malaysia's transportation ministry said. A flaperon is part of an aircraft's wing that helps control its speed and banking angle.

Experts will determine whether the debris found on the French territory of Reunion Island last week is from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

The jetliner vanished on March 8, 2014 after leaving Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for Beijing. It had 239 people on board.

Work to conclusively identify the piece of wreckage and determine if it is from the missing plane will begin Wednesday, French prosecutors said.

PETALING JAYA: Australia says the location of a piece of wreckage found on La Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, is consistent with modelling that the flight of Malaysia Airlines MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

Debris found on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion is to be transported to France to find out whether it is from the missing flight MH370, Malaysia's prime minister has said.
