Metal object found on Terengganu beach could be from MH370

BESUT - Several experts, including investigators who handled the Malaysia Airlines MH370 incident, arrived at the Besut police station this morning to examine a metal object which had washed up on a beach here on Thursday.

The metal object, which measured around two-metres in length, was discovered by villagers from Kampung Beting Lintang.

The villagers had speculated that the object could have come from an aircraft.

The investigators arrived at 10.30am and examined the metal object. They were later brought to the beach where the object was first discovered.

The object was found about 50 metres from the shore.

Police had urged the public not to make any speculations on its origins.

On Monday, a piece of suspected plane wreckage was found on a beach at the Nakhon Si Thammarat province in southern Thailand, prompting speculation that it could belong to the missing MH370.

The claim, however, was dispelled on Wednesday when Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai confirmed that the debris was not that of the missing aircraft.
