Kiev, Sept 9: The downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Eastern Ukraine was likely caused by the plane being hit by multiple "high-energy objects from outside the aircraft", said the dutch team investigating the incident.

The preliminary report on the case was published on Tuesday by the Dutch Safety Board. It said the plane Boeing 777 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile.

The Boeing 777 was downed on July 17 while flying over the eastern Ukraine, which is held by rebels, killing all 298 passengers and crew on board.

The incident happened almost four months after another Malaysian flight MH370 disappeared while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
