Amid conflicting signals, France expands search for debris from Malaysia Airlines flight

France announced it would bolster efforts to search for more debris from the plane missing for 16 months, after the discovery of a wing fragment that officials are all but certain broke off the Boeing 777.

There remained a difference of opinion between Malaysian officials and their counterparts in France, the U.S. and Australia over whether the flap found on the French Indian Ocean island last week was definitely from Flight 370.
