Several pieces of "metallic debris" have been found on La Reunion island, where a Boeing 777 wing part believed to belong to missing flight MH370 washed up last week, a source close to the investigation said Sunday. Investigators on the Indian Ocean island took the debris into evidence as part of their probe into the fate of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, although nothing indicated that it came from an airplane, the source said.
