Plane brings human remains from MH17 crash to Netherlands

A military transport plane has flown a coffin carrying human remains recovered from the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 back to the Netherlands.



Eindhoven: A military transport plane has flown a coffin carrying human remains recovered from the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 back to the Netherlands.

The remains were recovered in recent days from eastern Ukraine along with parts of the wreckage of the Boeing 777 that was downed July 17.

Forensic experts have so far identified the remains of all but three of the 298 people killed when the plane was brought down by what authorities suspect was a surface-to-air missile.

Pall bearers carried the coffin from the plane to a hearse at a military air base in Eindhoven on today. The remains will be examined by a forensics team working at a military barracks in the central Dutch city of Hilversum.
