295 victims of downed flight MH17 identified

This week one victim of downed flight MH17 was identified. The victim has the Dutch nationality. Including the victims already identified, a total of 295 victims onboard flight MH17 have now been identified. The victim's relatives have been informed.

The National Forensic Investigations Team (Landelijk Team Forensische Opsporing, LTFO) has been working on identifying the 298 victims of the MH17 plane crash since July 2014. It is possible that information about the three missing victims (all with Dutch nationality) will be yielded by the remains already present in Hilversum. It is not yet possible to say if and when that information will become available. The media will be informed when new identification information becomes available.
