Rebels deny they had weapons to shoot down MH17
AFP, Tuesday 9 Sep 2014


Pro-Russian rebels in east Ukraine said Tuesday that they did not have the capability to shoot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, after Dutch investigators said it was hit by numerous "high-energy objects".

"I can say only one thing: we simply do not have the military hardware capable of shooting down a Boeing passenger jet such as the Malaysian plane," Alexander Zakharchenko, prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, told Russia's Interfax new agency.
