Paris - The French prosecutor's office has concluded that a wing part found on Reunion Island in July, belongs to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The wing part was found on July 29 after a 16-month search for the missing plane. In a statement, the prosecutor said that three numbers found on the wing part allowed investigators to conclude "with certainty" that it belonged to the missing Boeing 777.

The plane disappeared without a trace with 239 people aboard about an hour after it left Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing on March 8 2014. The plane changed course and went out over the Indian Ocean before losing all contact.
