Nine months after the investigation into the destruction of MH17 started, there have been no answers and no justice for the victims - but an investigation by 60 Minutes has shed more light on one of the cruellest acts of mass murder in recent memory.
A British investigator says he has almost certain proof Flight MH17 was shot down by a missile from a Russian air base.

Facebook briefly deleted a prominent Russian opposition journalist's post about Moscow's possible involvement in the downing of a Malaysian airliner in Ukraine last year but restored it later on May 7, calling the removal a "mistake."

An independent Russian newspaper has published what it said was a report by Russian military engineers suggesting a Malaysian airliner shot down in Ukraine was hit by a Russian-made surface-to-air BUK missile fired by Ukrainian forces.
