    MH370: Photos of possible personal belongings released

    June 20, Kuala Lumpur: Photos of items possibly belonging to those on board of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been released hoping to identify them.

    They washed up on a beach in Madagascar close to where other debris thought to belong to the plane were found. Some 20 items found include purses, backpacks and part of a laptop case.

    There are no labels identifying them as belonging to the 239 people on board the jet that vanished two years ago.

    Lawyer Blaine Gibson, who is funding his own search for the missing plane, said the items may have nothing to do with the doomed flight which vanished more than two years ago with 239 people on board.

    MH370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 and is presumed to have crashed into the southern Indian Ocean after veering off course.

    Campaigners have released the images on the Aircrash Support Group Australia website to ascertain whether they may have belonged to MH370 passengers.

    The group's chair, Sheryl Keen, said the images were being posted "to make sure everyone has the right and opportunity to view these items".
