Air crash investigators concluded Tuesday that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by a missile fired from war-torn eastern Ukraine last year, killing all 298 people on board."This warhead fits the kind of missile that is installed in the BUK surface-to-air missile system".While he insisted investigators had not pinned down the exact location of the missile's launch site, maps shown to reporters clearly showed the area near Donetsk held by pro-Russian separatists.Joustra also hit out at the Ukrainian authorities for allowing civil aircraft to continue to fly above the eastern part of the country despite the raging conflict between Kiev's forces and pro-Russian separatist insurgents.The findings were swiftly disputed by the missile maker Almaz-Antey, which has carried out its own tests into the crash.
