Dutch MH17 trial to start without suspects

BADHOEVEDORP, NETHERLANDS (AFP) – The trial of four men accused of murder over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in 2014 opened in the Netherlands on Monday. It follows a half-decade long fight for justice by families of the 298 people who were killed when the jet was shot down over Ukraine by a Russian-made missile as it travelled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
