Two pieces of debris discovered in South Africa and Rodrigues Island off Mauritius are "almost certainly" from Flight 370, bringing the total number of pieces believed to have come from the missing Malaysian jet to five, NBC News reported.
The aircraft mysteriously disappeared more than two years ago with 239 people on board, and so far an extensive underwater search of vast area of the Indian Ocean off Australia's west coast has turned up empty.
Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said the two new pieces were an engine cowling piece with a partial Rolls-Royce logo and an interior panel piece from an aircraft cabin — the first interior part found from the missing plane.

An international team of experts in Australia who examined the debris concluded that both pieces were consistent with panels found on a Malaysia Airlines' Boeing 777 aircraft, Liow said.
