MH17 DOWNING MAY BE WAR CRIME – UN
The downing of Malaysia Airlines jet MH17 in eastern Ukraine may constitute a “war crime”, the UN human rights chief Navi Pillay says.
Ukraine and Western governments believe pro-Russian rebels shot down MH17, using a missile system supplied by Russia. All 298 people on board – most of them Dutch – died.
Moscow and the rebels have blamed Ukrainian forces for the plane crash.
Dutch and Australian police are reported to be heading for the site.
