MH17 crash report chairman on report findings

Dutch investigators say the damage to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which crashed in eastern Ukraine on 17 July, suggests it was pierced by a large number of objects from outside the plane.

Pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine have denied shooting down the plane in a missile attack.

The Dutch Safety Board says its preliminary report was based on the contents of the flight and cockpit data recorders, other communication with the plane, as well as forensic examination of the wreckage where possible.

The Board Chairman, Tjibbe Joustra, explained what further investigative work would be needed before the final report next year.
