Murder trial opens into downed Malaysian airliner

The names of all 298 victims of a missile strike on a Malaysian airliner were read out in a Dutch court on Monday as the murder trial of four defendants began. Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 was hit by a surface-to-air missile on July 17, 2014 while flying over Ukrainian territory. All the defendants are fugitives. None of the accused were present in the courtroom and are believed to be in Russia.
