THE HAGUE - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has called President Petro Poroshenko to ask Ukrainian forces to stop fighting around the MH17 crash site, a government spokesman said on Tuesday.

"The prime minister this morning called the Ukrainian president with a request to halt hostilities around the crash site," Jean Fransman told AFP, after fighting with pro-Russian separatists prevented international investigators reaching the site for a third day.
