>> Pieces of a tragic puzzle falling into place. Investigators on Thursday saying two scraps of debris discovered in South Africa and Mauritius, almost certainly belongs to missing flight MH370. One, a scrap of engine cover with the Rolls Royce stencil, the other looking like a panel from the main cabin.

The plane disappeared on route to Beijing more than two years ago. Since then, investigators had little to go on, making it one of the world's biggest aviation mysteries. The search led by Australia, has focused on a remote stretch of the Indian Ocean. The theory being that someone may have switched off the plane's transponder and then diverted it thousands of miles off its original course.

So far, a total of five pieces of debris have been confirmed as belonging to the missing plane, all of them found thousands of miles from the search zone, but in places where ocean currents could realistically have washed them up.
