Malaysia's leader has confirmed that a piece of an airplane wing found on an Indian Ocean island belonged to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. The airplane disappeared 17 months ago while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, China.

Prime Minister Najib Razak made the announcement on Malaysian television.

The plane was carrying 239 passengers and crew when it disappeared. Relatives of the victims say the finding does not bring them closure. They say many questions remain and that the entire plane must be found.

He said if the deal takes effect, it "would be good for Iran. It would be good for the United States. It would be good for a region that has known too much conflict. It would be good for the world.'

Zimbabwe delays lion kill trial

A Zimbabwe court has delayed the trial for a Zimbabwean hunter accused of helping to kill a beloved wild lion called Cecil.

Magistrate Lindiwe Maphosa said she has delayed the trial of Theodore Bronkhorst until late next month.

The man's lawyer told reporters that he had sought the postponement.

American hunter Walter Palmer shot and killed the lion last month. He is believed to have paid Mr. Bronkhorst $55,000 for safari guide services connected to the killing.
