While the whole world is eagerly watching the news for suspected debris from the missing Malaysian airline flight MH370, Maldives newspaper Haveeru which earlier reported a possible sighting of the plane flying low over an island of Maldives have again reported that an object suspected to be a fire suppression bottle of an aircraft has washed up on the beach of one of the islands in the Maldives.

The residents of Baarah, in Haa Alifu Atoll Maldives, saw an object washed up on the island’s beach on Monday. Most of the witnesses thought it could be some sort of an explosive or a sea mine and immediately reported it to the police who swiftly arrived to the scene and subsequently reported it to the Maldives Defence Force. According to Haveeru the Maldives National Defence Force on Wednesday said it was not an explosive device but did not elaborate further on the nature of the object.

Three aircraft engineers and a pilot who chose to be anonymous have told Haveeru that the suspected object is very likely to be a fire suppression bottle from an aircraft.

This discovery of this possible debris, from missing Malaysian airline flight MH370 comes a week after several residents from Kuda Huvadho, another island in the Maldives, reported sightings of a very low flying jet over their island on the day the flight went missing. However both the Maldives National Defence force and Malaysian authorities have denied the sightings and Maldives National Defence force have not revealed any details of this washed up “fire suppression bottle”. Malaysian authorities have revealed satellite photos of 122 potential objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean.

The Malaysian airline flight MH370 disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board after taking off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing.
