PARIS (AFP) - French investigators have not received any further pieces of plane wreckage from Reunion island, a legal source said on Thursday, following news that aircraft seat cushions and window panes had been found.

French judicial authorities "have not as yet received new plane debris," said the source, as authorities continue to probe a piece of wing from the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
