London : A part of curved metal measuring two metres by three metres, covered in barnacles, that was found on the shore of the Gulf of Thailand has promoted speculation that it might belong to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Local residents reported the item to authorities in Nakhon Si Thammarat province on Saturday, The Guardian reported.
Tanyapat Patthikongpan said that Villagers found the wreckage, measuring about two metres wide and three metres long.
Thai and international media suggested the wreckage might be part of MH370, which disappeared with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board in March 2014 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
