MH17 Victims Remembered on First Anniversary
A year later, they’re still awaiting answers. Loved ones are gathering to pay tribute to the 298 victims of Flight MH17, shot down over Ukraine a year ago today. Pro-Russian separatists are believed to have fired upon the Malaysia Airlines plane heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. But Russia denies this, instead blaming Ukrainian forces. This week, some relatives filed a nearly $900 million lawsuit in the U.S. against a one-time leader of the Ukrainian rebels. And a British official today called for an international tribunal to prosecute those responsible.
