Dutch team completes first inspection of MH17 crash victims

Vienna - Dutch forensic experts have carried out a first inspection of the more than 200 bodies recovered from a Malaysia Airlines crash site in eastern Ukraine, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) says.

"The Dutch experts said the bodies are well stored," OSCE spokeswoman Olesia Oleshko said of the victims, whose bodies have been placed into cooled train wagons in the town of Torez.

OSCE monitors have been observing the crash site of flight MH17during the past days. Oleshko said pro-Russian separatists controlling the area started granting wider access at the weekend.
