International investigators said Wednesday that three Russians and one Ukrainian would be charged with murder for launching a missile that downed a Malaysia Airlines flight in 2014 over Eastern Ukraine. The investigators say the plane was shot down by a Russian missile, though Russia has denied involvement in the attack. MH17 was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, carrying people from 17 different countries. All 298 people on board were killed in the attack. Prosecutors say a trial in a Dutch court will be held next March. The suspects will likely be tried in absentia as Ukraine and Russia both have laws protecting citizens from extradition.
