Reports of second object found on Reunion Island:Flight 370

A second part of suspected plane debris has been found on the Indian Ocean Island of Reunion, according to media reports Sunday.
The item was handed to authorities after it washed ashore south of the island's capital of St Denis in the north, according to the the BBC.
The broadcaster said it is believed to be a plane door. Sky News reported the object was initially thought to be an aircraft door, but that cannot now be confirmed.
Sky News said the object was discovered in a different location to a wing flap, which was found on a beach in the town of Saint Andre, on the northeast of the island on Wednesday. The new object has Chinese and Malaysian writing on it, according to the broadcaster.
The wing flap, suspected to be from the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, arrived at a testing facility in France on Saturday. The 8-foot flaperon was escorted to the DGA TA aeronautical testing site near Toulouse, southern France, by police motorcycles and a police car.
Malaysia’s transport ministry confirmed Sunday that the flaperon had been verified as being from a Boeing 777, the same type of aircraft as Flight 370, which disappeared on March 8, 2014 after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, en route to Beijing with 239 people aboard.
Officials from the country said they would seek help from territories near Reunion to try to find more plane debris, the Associated Press reported.

Experts in Toulouse will begin work to determine whether the part came from the missing Boeing 777 on Wednesday, the Paris prosecutor's office said. Reunion is a French territory.
Aviation security expert Christophe Naudin told France's BFM-TV that just three 777s have crashed since 2013 and the other two were in completely different locations, the AP reported.
"One is in the United States, one in Ukraine, and this one in the Indian Ocean," he said. "In the aeronautic community there is no (doubt) on the issue of what the debris belongs to. We are all convinced that it belongs to this flight (370)."
