Investigators probing the 2014 Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine will announce charges against several suspects today.

The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT) are set to lay a number of criminal charges and name the alleged culprits for the first time.

A press briefing will be held at 1100 GMT after investigators brief the relatives of victims.

The breakthrough comes nearly a year after the investigators said a BUK missile shot down the passenger flight, killing all 298 on board.
