- MH17: Bodies missing as forensic experts begin identifying victims
The head of the Dutch forensic team in Ukraine says a train carrying the remains of MH17 victims contains significantly fewer bodies than claimed by pro-Russian rebels.
The separatists said there were 282 bodies on the train but only 200 have been found.
"We are sure of having 200 bodies and body parts, that is all that I know," said Jan Tuinder, the head of the Dutch delegation.
Meanwhile, US intelligence officials say evidence suggested MH17 was shot down by "mistake" by ill-trained pro-Russian separatists.
