Preliminary results from Flight MH17 forensic probe expected later this year

The Boeing 777 was shot down over eastern Ukraine by a Russian-made Buk missile.

Malaysia’s transport minister said on Saturday preliminary conclusions from the forensic investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 two years ago could be received later this year.

The Boeing 777 was shot down over eastern Ukraine by a Russian-made Buk missile, the Dutch Safety Board concluded last year in its final report on the crash in July 2014 that killed all 298 people on board, most of them Dutch.
