MH17 Team Finds 'Possible' Missile Parts

The flight came down over rebel-held Ukraine in July last year, with the West saying Russian troops may have been responsible.

MH17 investigators say they have found parts of a "possible" BUK missile - the surface-to-air weapon developed by Russia.

The Malaysia Airlines flight came down over rebel-held Ukraine in July last year, killing 298 people on board, including 80 children.

International and Dutch investigators say they have identified debris at the crash site that "possibly" come from the Russian-made missiles.

There are understood to be seven pieces of debris, but investigators have not described the parts or released any images.

It is the first time that possible evidence of a missile has been discovered.
