GILZE-RIJEN (Netherlands): Air crash investigators concluded Tuesday that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down by a Russian-made BUK missile fired from war-torn eastern Ukraine last year killing all 298 people on board. 

Even though the Dutch-led inquiry did not say who pulled the trigger, Russian officials were already disputing the findings set to further degrade strained ties between Moscow and the West.
