    Netherlands: Russia Let MH17 Suspect Escape

    Dutch authorities say Russia allowed a key suspect in the 2014 downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 to flee back home to a region of rebel-held Ukraine. Vladimir Tsemakh was sent to Russia in a prisoner exchange after his arrest by Ukrainian authorities, but Moscow says it lost track of him before it could honor the Dutch extradition request.

    Could Tsemakh be arrested again? His return to a part of eastern Ukraine that remains outside of government control would dash those hopes, but the Netherlands is proceeding with a case against four other suspects starting March 9.
