Maputo - A piece of wreckage from a Boeing 777 - likely from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 - has been found washed ashore, CNN reported on Wednesday.

The Mirror said the latest discovery was made on a sandbank in the Mozambiqiue Channel - near Reunion island, where debris was found last year.

It said the piece of metal is believed to be part of the plane's horisontal stabiliser.

CNN quoted a US official as saying the newly discovered debris is on its way to Malaysia for further examination.

Flight MH370 disappeared two years ago on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 on board.
