Warhead brought down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17

(KWWL) -

Dutch officials say a warhead fired from Eastern Ukraine brought down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. 

The plane went down last July over Ukrainian territory that's controlled by pro-Russian separatists. 

All 298 people on board were killed. 

The flight was shot down when it was en route from Amsterdam to Malaysia. 

Dutch officials say authorities in the region should have known that flying a civil aircraft in a war zone is dangerous.
