The wreckage they've found so far from missing jet MH370 and where they found it

The search operation has lasted three years, covered thousands of miles of ocean and unearthed a few small fragments of wreckage.
But despite yielding a number of clues, the hunt for missing airliner MH370 has so far provided no real answers for the beleaguered families of the 239 people who were on board.

The doomed passenger plane disappeared on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing, China.
Three years on all that has been found of the stricken jet is a few pieces of debris, washed up on beaches from the southern tip of South Africa to the east coast of Tanzania, 3,000 miles further north.
Three pieces have been confirmed as being from the plane, but a number of others are 'almost certainly' from the stricken jet and yet more items are seen as being 'likely' pieces of the aircraft.
Seven have been named as 'almost certainly' part of the aircraft, while six have been labelled 'highly likely', and two have been called 'likely' part of the plane.
Two other items are under evaluation to see if they are part of the aircraft.
After a huge search operation yielded little in the way of concrete information about the disappearance of the jet, the hunt was abandoned in January.
Search crews completed their deep-sea search of a desolate stretch of the Indian Ocean without finding a trace of the plane.
And since no technology currently exists that can tell investigators exactly where the plane is, that effectively means the most expensive, complex search in aviation history is over.
