Debris from Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was shot down in July last year in Eastern Ukraine, has been identified as possible fragments of a Russian-made missile system. Dutch Chief Investigator Fred Westerbeke says investigators are still verifying the fragment.
“We found seven pieces, seven pieces which we established that they were not part of the airplane, and further investigation gives us now the conclusion that it’s probably part of the missile system and of a BUK missile system.
“The next step is to establish a fact if this could be the missile system which downed MH17 and if that is true, we have important material in the investigation which can help us to find out where was this missile coming from, who was in possession, where was it made,” he said.
Pro-Russian rebels have been accused by experts and other governments for shooting down the plane, but weapons and forensics experts are to help determine the origin of the parts.
