- Flight 17 July 22
After the families of those lost in the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crash demanded the return of their relatives' bodies for proper burial, international investigators and pro-Russian rebels negotiated to allow the bodies' transport. Now, the remains have arrived in the government-controlled city of Kharkiv, Ukraine.
A refrigerated train carrying 282 bodies departed separatist-controlled eastern Ukraine on Monday following hours of negotiations, the BBC reports. When they arrived in Kharkiv on Tuesday morning, the bodies were transferred to a local factory. There, they will be placed in coffins before being sent to the Netherlands, where most of the passengers were from, for forensic examination.- -
