In the last two weeks, the forgotten tiny french island of Reunion has been in vogue for the newly found wreckage of missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 beginning with a wing called flaperon to the latest Quran copy.

While the flaperon has been flown to France for scientific match to confirm it belongs to MH370 Boeing 777, a latest find includes one laminated copy of the Quran in Jawi script that is used in Brunei and Malaysia, reports said.

The Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean has come into limelight with more parts of the mysteriously missing MH370 found there almost 16 months after the incident on March 8, 2014.

Other pieces of wreckage found so far include a suitcase and a seat of the aircraft and relatives are reportedly agitated that the Malaysian government has not arranged for their visit to the island to look and identify the belongings of their loved ones.

The Quran, laminated and written in Jawi, an Arabic script is popular in Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei or even Mindanao island of the Philippines.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian officials in Reunion are busy scouting for more belongings of the missing aircraft as it would help them close the case with authenticity, facilitating insurance claims and clues to what happened.

However, the Blackbox of the flight, even if found, would not reveal much information as the data cannot be retrieved once the deadline of about one month after the crash gets over.

The mayor of Saint-Andre, where the wing was found first, said the passengers’ relatives can visit the island and he proposed a memorial for the missing passengers.
