Dutch Soccer Fans Pay Tribute To Malaysia Airlines Victims With MASSIVE Display

Paul Conner Executive Editor

Fans of the Dutch soccer team Feyenoord Rotterdam paid their respects to the victims aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 with a massive stadium display and a moment of silence before the team’s friendly game against Spain’s Real Sociedad Wednesday.

The display, which appeared to stretch longer than the width of the field — typically 70 to 80 yards — included the names of each of the victims. In the center of the display was an image of a father and child holding hands and facing the Feyenoord soccer stadium, with “MH17” written above.

Pro-Russia rebels in Ukraine reportedly used a surface-to-air missile to shoot down the Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine last week.

One-hundred ninety three of the 298 victims were Dutch citizens. The bodies of some of the victims arrived in the Netherlands Wednesday.
