Families of six crew on downed MH17 sue airline

world Updated: Jun 03, 2016 06:50 IST

KUALA LUMPUR: The families of six cabin crew aboard ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 sued the airline on Thursday for negligence and breach of contract, nearly two years after the plane was downed over eastern Ukraine. Flight MH17 was en route from Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down in July 2014, killing all 298 passengers and crew. The aircraft was shot down by a Russian-made surface-to-air missile, the Dutch Safety Board concluded.
