Australia to Hold National Day of Mourning for MH17 Victims

Storyful

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Australian flags would be lowered across the country on August 7, as the nation remembers those killed on MH17 during a national day of mourning. Speaking in a prerecorded message the prime minister said: “We will remember the 298 innocent people who died on Flight MH17, we grieve for all of them, but particularly for the 38 who called Australia home. Today we will remember them and we will honour them.” Credit: YouTube/Tony Abbot
