THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch prosecutors say the body of one passenger of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was found wearing an oxygen mask.

That raises questions about how much those on board knew about their fate when in July the plane plunged out of the sky above Eastern Ukraine, where government troops battled Russian-backed separatists.

Prosecutors say the passenger, an Australian, did not have the mask on his face, but its elastic strap was around his neck. All 298 passengers and crew died.
