Mark Rute

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rute said on Friday that if Malaysia Airlines’ passenger plane was indeed shot down, he would not rest until the perpetrators were brought to justice. «Let me be crystal clear (..). If it turns out that it was an attack, I will personally monitor that the perpetrators are brought to justice, “the Prime Minister said.
At 10:05 p.m., the US president on Friday expressed confidence that the Malaysia Airlines plane was shot down by a ground-air missile fired from Russian-backed separatist-controlled territory. Obama also confirmed that among the 298 people killed in the crash on Thursday, there is also one American. The President pointed out that the exact circumstances of what had happened were not yet known and that it was still unknown who ordered the plane to be shot down and what the intention was.
