France has launched a hunt for more wreckage from the ill-fated MH370 plane off Reunion island, in a fresh effort to shed light on one of aviation's biggest mysteries.

The tiny French Indian Ocean territory has been under intense scrutiny since a beach cleaner found a washed-up wing part last week.

France is adding airplanes, helicopters and ships, including French Marine units, to its search for the remains of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, the government said

The flaperon is currently being examined by experts in France for clues as to the last moments of the Malaysia Airlines aircraft that inexplicably veered off course en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March last year.

Officials say helicopters will be used to search for more debris, while soldiers and policemen will patrol the eastern part of the island where the flaperon was discovered.
