    By Praveen Menon and Tim Hepher KUALA LUMPUR/PARIS (Reuters) - Malaysia is "almost certain" that plane debris found on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean is from a Boeing 777, the deputy transport minister said on Thursday, heightening the possibility it could be wreckage from missing Flight MH370. The object, which appeared to be part of a wing, was being sent to offices of France's BEA crash investigation agency in Toulouse to verify if was indeed the first trace of the lost plane to be found, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said. Malaysia Airlines was operating a Boeing 777 on the ill-fated flight, which vanished in March last year while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in one of the most baffling mysteries in aviation history.

Prior to the ruling, most residents paid as little as 1pc IHT, but non-residents or expats who split their time between Spain and the UK were charged as much as 35pc, even when a property or assets were passed to a spouse.
