MH17 flight memorial


A NATIONAL memorial service will be held in Canberra next month to mark the first anniversar­y of the downing of flight MH17 over Ukraine.

A permanent memorial will be created in the House of Representa­tives garden beside the victims of the Bali bombings, Prime Minister Tony Abbott told Parliament yesterday.

“We took the families of flight MH17 into our hearts a year ago and I hope that this service might help to sustain them as they face this very, very difficult anniversar­y,” he said. MH17 was shot down over Ukraine on July 17.
