Bodies from MH17 site placed on train, OSCE says told by rebels

KIEV - European security body OSCE said Sunday that pro-Moscow rebels in east Ukraine told it that 169 bodies collected from the crash site of Malaysian flight MH17 have been placed on a train pending arrival of international experts.

Spokesman Michael Bociurkiw said separatists who were in charge of the operation had given the assurance to OSCE monitors at the Torez station.

Asked about reports that a train carrying corpses had already arrived at the rebel stronghold city of Donetsk, the OSCE spokesman, who was speaking from the crash site, said he could not say for certain if the trains had been moved.
