More remains and MH17 wreckage recovered

More wreckage from MH17 was salvaged from the crash site in eastern Ukraine today. Human remains were also found.

The Dutch Safety Board has noted that efforts went to plan. Parts of the wreckage were transported to Torez railway station and loaded onto goods trains, ready to be transported to Kharkiv at a later date. The operation will continue tomorrow if circumstances allow; the security situation remains fragile.

Members of the Dutch repatriation mission have secured the remains found during the salvage operation. They will be taken to Kharkiv for initial forensic checks before being flown to the Netherlands at a time to be determined.
