THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) – A relative of one of the people killed on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 says it was “as quiet as a mouse” today when Dutch investigators told victims’ families that it was a Buk missile that downed the plane over Ukraine in July 2014.

The Dutch Safety Board says the missile was fired from a surface to air system, killing all 298 people on board.

The Board met with families and then made the announcement to the public following a 15-month investigation.
