Dutch researchers to publish initial MH17 crash report next week

The first results of the official Dutch investigation into the crash of Malaysia Airways flight MH17 in Ukraine will be published next Tuesday.

The Dutch safety research council is in charge of the international team of investigators looking into the crash, which is though to have been caused by a missile.

The information in the report will be based on the black boxes, satellite images and evidence from Ukranian air traffic control. The investigation is ongoing.

The aim is to get as complete a picture as possible into what brought down the plane on July 17, killing all 283 people on board. Of them, 198 were Dutch.
