Results expected to name the weapon behind the crash and the launch site, Dutch prosecutor said
Initial results from a criminal probe into the downing of a Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over war-torn Ukraine two years ago will be revealed next month, Dutch prosecutors said Friday, according to AFP.
"We have informed victims' relatives that we will have a new meeting on September 28 where the results of the criminal investigation will be unveiled," said Wim de Bruin, spokesman for the Dutch public prosecutor's office.
The results are expected to shed light on the exact type of missile used to shoot down the jetliner on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 passengers and crew on board, and exactly where it was fired from.
The information specifically relates to "which weapon was used and from where it was fired," said De Bruin, whose office is leading an international team of investigators.
