A Plane wreckage containing ‘many skeletons’ and painted with the Malaysian flag has reportedly been found in the Philippines, prompting speculation it could be missing MH370.
Police confirmed they had received reports of the discovery in thick jungle on the remote island of Sugbai.
Mailonline reports that,an audio technician, Jamil Omar, phoned police in Malaysia to say his aunt, Siti Kayam, had stumbled upon the wreckage while she and others were hunting for birds.
Police commissioner Jalaludin Abdul Rahman, said the woman claimed she climbed into the smashed fuselage and saw skeletons.He said:
‘Jamil claimed his aunt had entered the aircraft wreckage, which had many human skeletons and bones.’She also found a Malaysian flag measuring 70 inches long and 35 inches wide.’
Speculation grew that the wreckage could belong to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared in March last year with 239 people on board.
Police remain reserved about the report, mindful of confirmation by French authorities that part of an aircraft wing – a flaperon – found on the island of Reunion in the west of the Indian Ocean earlier this year had been confirmed as being from MH370.
