Train Carrying Remains of MH17 Bodies Arrives In Ukraine

UKRAINE - A train carrying the remains of victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 has arrived in Ukrainian government territory.

Around 200 body bags were on the train, which arrived in the city of Kharkiv today.

The bodies will be taken to the Netherlands for identification.

The train left a town near the crash site yesterday after Malaysia's Prime Minister agreed with the separatists for the recovered bodies to be handed over to authorities in the Netherlands.

That's where two-thirds of the victims came from.

Also in eastern Ukraine today, a separatist leader handed over the plane's black boxes to Malaysian officials in Donetsk.

Experts have called for a full forensic sweep of the crash site amid suggestions some of the evidence may have been tampered with.

A Malaysian investigator said the black boxes were in good condition.
