No more remains found at MH17 site

Amsterdam - The head of a team of international investigators says more personal belongings of victims of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 disaster in eastern Ukraine have been found, but no human remains.

Speaking from the Ukrainian capital Kiev, Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg said 88 experts on Sunday searched an area of 6km² near the village of Rozsypne in the fields where the plane's wreckage is scattered.

The recovery effort was initially slowed by fighting between pro-Russia separatist rebels and Ukrainian forces nearby and is expected to take several weeks.

Flight 17 was shot down on 17 July, killing all 298 passengers and crew, most of them Dutch.

Remains of more than 200 victims have been found transferred to the Netherlands for identification.

You missed the big story. OSCE observers have concluded that the cockpit was shot with machine gun fire and not a BUK missile. In other words, Putin had nothing to do with it, neither did the Republic of Donesk militia. It was the Kiev Nazi Junta and their jets that were following the plane. It was the Kiev air traffic controllers that told it to go off course and told it to lower it's flight path.
