Work to recover the wreckage of downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has finally finished.Read the full story ›
One of the 298 victims of the MH17 disaster - when a Malaysia Airlines plane was shot down over eastern Ukraine - was found wearing an oxygen mask, Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans said.
The flight was hit by "objects" that "pierced the plane at high velocity", according to an initial report into the disaster, leading to the theory that all on board instantly died after the missile hit.
In a speech to the UN four days after the crash, Mr Timmermans talked emotively about the horror passengers went through "when they knew the plane was going down".
A Dutch talkshow today accused Mr Timmermans of falsely describing events on board the doomed flight during his UN speech.
The Dutch Foreign Minister admitted that all of the people on the flight would not have seen the missile but revealed that one passenger was found with his oxygen mask on.
