Dutch Investigators Promised Access To Bodies On Trains

(Torez, Ukraine) -- A Dutch forensics team is waiting to begin examining victims of the Malaysia airliner crash in Ukraine. A Dutch official says a train carrying crash victims will travel to a location where investigators can do their work. More than half the victims who were aboard the downed Boeing 777 are from the Netherlands, but international investigators hadn't been able to reach the separatist-controlled area for days. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said over the weekend he was shocked and angered by the "utterly disrespectful behavior" of those who dragged corpses around and left them to fester in the eastern Ukraine sun. The U.S. and other Western powers believe the plane was shot down by pro-Russia militants.
