Mike Corder, chief correspondent, Netherlands; Aleks Furtula, video journalist, Netherland; Mark Carlson, video journalist, Brussels; and Raf Casert, news editor, Brussels, dominated the trial over the shooting-down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, continuing the AP’s ownership of this story from the time since the plane crashed down in a Ukrainian sunflower field in 2014. A Dutch court convicted three men of murder for their role in the shooting down of the plane with a Russian surface-to-air missile that killed all 298 people aboard as it flew over a separatist-controlled region of eastern Ukraine. There were some 1,000 hits on AP video filed the day of the verdict.
