MH17 families appeal to Trump to press Putin for information

AP  |  The Hague (Netherlands) 

Families of those killed when a Buk missile blew Flight 17 out of the sky above in 2014 are calling on US to press his Russian counterpart to provide answers about the downing.

In a letter to Trump published Friday on Twitter, relatives of about 30 of the 298 passengers and crew killed on July 17, 2014, say "we have a right to know what happened to our loved ones."

Trump and Putin will both be in this weekend for commemorations of the centenary of the end of World War I, but are not expected to hold a bilateral summit.

They plan to hold talks at a Group of 20 summit in at the end of the month.
