Last week's discovery of a two-meter-long wing part called a flaperon, apparently from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, has provided the first glimmer of hope for relatives desperate for answers in what remains one of the biggest mysteries in the history of aviation.

Malaysia said Monday its missing airliner had crashed in the Indian Ocean, extinguishing the hopes of relatives of those on board but shedding no light on why it veered so far off course.
A sombre Prime Minister Najib Razak said a new analysis of satellite data on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370's path placed its last position in remote waters off Australia's west coast, "far from any possible landing sites."
