Fragments of a Buk anti-aircraft missile have been found in the bodies of victims of the Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 disaster in eastern Ukraine, an investigator has said.

Vasyl Vovk, a senior officer of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) who headed the Ukrainian contribution to the joint investigation into the disaster, said the fragments found amongst the aircraft wreckage and in victims’ bodies matched parts from two Buk missiles that investigators dismantled for comparison.

“The fragments found in the bodies of the victims and the remains of the aircraft, are elements that resemble the samples from Buks given to experts for comparative research,” Vovk told Dutch news site NOS.
