MH17 Crash Investigators Find Possible Russian Missile Parts

Dutch investigators have found possible fragments of a Russian-made missile system at the crash site of MH17 in eastern Ukraine.

A statement by the Dutch Safety Board says the parts may have come from a Buk surface-to-air missile system. (Video via Dutch Safety Board)

For the moment, there's no telling whether the parts have anything to do with the MH17 crash in 2014, which killed everyone on board. 

It's widely suspected the plane was brought down by an anti-aircraft system, and a preliminary report released by the Dutch Safety Board in September of last year said MH17 was struck down by "high energy objects."

Who was controlling the anti-aircraft system is unknown. Ukraine says it was Russian-backed rebels using a Russian-supplied anti-aircraft system, while the rebels say Ukraine was the culprit.
