Dutch government releases MH17 documents, faces criticism for redactions

The Dutch government has released dozens of documents about the aftermath of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but much of the information has been redacted.

One of the Dutch broadcasters that requested the information be made public, RTL News, said Tuesday it would protest about the number of redactions and take the government to court if necessary to compel it to reveal more details.

RTL's deputy editor, Pieter Klein, says on the broadcaster's website "we want the relevant facts so that a serious reconstruction can be made of the Cabinet's performance" after the crash.

Flight 17 crashed in eastern Ukraine on July 17, killing all 298 people on board. Dutch crash investigators and police are probing the cause, which is believed to be a surface-to-air missile strike.
