Welcome to our live coverage of the publication of the first official account of how Malaysia Airlines flight came down over eastern Ukraine on 17 July killing all 298 passengers on board.

The United States said there was “strong evidence” that the plane was shot down by pro-Russian separatists. Moscow has denied this pointing instead to the Ukraine air force.

At 0800 GMT the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) is due to publish its preliminary report into the crash. It will include details gathered from the cockpit voice recorder, the flight data recorder, satellite and other images, and radar information.

The DSB said it would not apportion blame for the incident but look only at the cause of the crash. It is due to publish its final report within a year.
