Travel Daily Asia - - Front Page -

Ev­i­dence of a Rus­sian-made mis­sile has been dis­cov­ered at the crash site of flight MH17, in­ves­ti­ga­tors have re­vealed.

The BBC re­ported the joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion team, which com­prises rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Nether­lands, Ukraine, Malaysia, Aus­tralia, the UK, US and Rus­sia, as say­ing that parts of a Buk sur­face-to-air sys­tem have been found amon­gat the wreck­age, although they stopped short of con­firm­ing that the Boe­ing 777 was shot down.

It is widely be­lieved that proMoscow rebels used a Rus­sian­made mis­sile to shoot down flight MH17 in July 2014, killing all 298 peo­ple on board.
