PARIS - France has discovered what appears to be part of an Air France aircraft that crashed in the Atlantic almost two years ago killing all 228 people on board, accident investigators said on Sunday.

A salvage vessel equipped with unmanned submarines located pieces of an aircraft in the past 24 hours and French experts believe they come from the missing Airbus A330 passenger plane, the BEA accident investigation authority said.
