More remains found at MH17 site

More human remains have been found at the crash site of a Malaysia Airlines plane that was brought down in Ukraine, according to rebels.

The rebel transportation ministry said the remains will be handed over by officials from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to forensic specialists in the city of Kharkiv.

A team of Dutch, Ukrainian and OSCE rescue workers last week safely reached the area where the Boeing 777's wreckage is scattered and retrieved an unspecified number of human remains.

Pro-Russian separatists remain in control of the site where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down on July 17, killing 298 people, most of them Dutch citizens.
