KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The Malaysian government was certain: The airplane part found on an Indian Ocean island came from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Investigators in France weren’t so sure quite yet.
And those differing approaches created confusion and anguish Thursday for the families of those aboard the ill-fated flight.
“From our first observation, the color tone and all maintenance records that we have, we know,” Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said. “Our records show that it’s the same as MH370.”
