Malaysia Air MH-370

St Andre Beach on Reunion Island which is about 28 miles from the cruise ship port of Le Port, Pointe des Galets, Reunion Island is the location where debris from Malaysia Airlines MH-370 has been found.

People cleaning a beach Wednesday, July 29, 2015, on Reunion Island found what appears to be a piece from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-370 which disappeared from radar on March 8, 2014 with 239 people aboard.

Malaysia Airlines MH-370 debris which now includes a suitcase (see photos above) as well as what appears to be a section of the wing, has washed up on the tiny island shores of St Andre Beach, Reunion, which is a french province.


Numerous boats in the area (Le Port Reunion Island with Live Cruise Ship Tracker with more photos of debris) are beginning to search the area for more debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

Reunion is a French island which has a population of 844,994 residents. Reunion is located in the Indian Ocean, just east of Madagascar, and just southeast of the primary area of Pirate Alley, where Somali pirate attacks have taken place as far east and south as Madagascar.

In 2011, a pirate mother ship broke down off the coast of Madagascar and 14 pirates were captured and arrested by Madagascar officials. Boats searching in the area for the airliner crash debris may be at risk from pirates noticing the increase in marine traffic.

According to the Commerical Crime Services (ICC), a division of the International Chamber Of Commerce, current pirate attack risk warnings are still issued for:
Red Sea / Gulf of Aden / Somalia / Arabian Sea / Indian Ocean: Attacks related to Somali pirates have reduced. However, the risk of being approached or attacked still exists. Vessels are advised and encouraged to remain vigilant and comply with all BMP4 procedures. The threat of these attacks still exist in the waters off southern Red Sea / Bab el Mandeb, Gulf of Aden, including Yemen and the northern Somali coast, Arabian sea / off Oman, Gulf of Oman and off the eastern and southern Somali coast. In the past vessels have been attacked off Kenya, Tanzania, Seychelles, Madagascar, Mozambique as well as in the Indian ocean and off the west and south coasts of India and west Maldives. Incidents have also been reported close to the east African coastlines.
