More Bodies Flown to Netherlands; Identification Work Continues

Posted: Updated:
Twenty-five forensic experts and dozens of support staff are now working to identify the remains of victims from the Malaysia Airlines plane that was shot down over eastern Ukraine last week.
 
The work began in the Netherlands late yesterday, after the remains of 40 victims arrived from Ukraine. Two more military aircraft with additional remains left Ukraine for the Netherlands today.
 
All 298 people aboard the flight were killed when it was brought down. Most were Dutch citizens.
 
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says he's afraid some remains will never be recovered unless security is tightened around the crash site. He has proposed a multi-national force from countries such as Australia, the Netherlands and Malaysia that lost citizens in the disaster.
 
He says he has sent 50 police officers to London to be ready to join any organization that may result.   (AP)
