A Vietnamese search plane has located fragments of an aircraft believed to be missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in waters off southern Vietnam.

The found fragments include a composite inner door and a piece of the tail. The location of the fragments was about 50 miles south-southwest of Tho Chu island, reports The Blaze.

Malaysia Airlines has not received confirmation regarding the suspected debris, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Vietnam’s ministry of information and communication stated they were unable to land near the objects to investigate them further because of darkening conditions. They will resume identification processes Monday morning.

Multiple countries have joined in the search for the missing aircraft, including China, the United States, Malaysia, and Vietnam.  

The investigation into exactly what caused the plane, traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, to lose communication with air traffic controllers has raised questions whether terrorism is a possible factor.

Two of the passengers on board the plane were using stolen passports. It has been reported by The Mirror that the passengers purchased their tickets together.

"Whilst it is too soon to speculate about any connection between these stolen passports and the missing plane, it is clearly of great concern that any passenger was able to board an international flight using a stolen passport listed in Interpol’s databases," Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said in a statement.

Malaysia's police chief, Inspector-General Khalid Abu Bakar, has said that police investigators “don’t dismiss the possibility” of terrorism, but do not consider it the most likely cause for flight MH370 disappearing.
