Dutch military plane to bring back more MH17 victims on Saturday

A Dutch military transport plane will arrive at Eindhoven airport on Saturday afternoon carrying more remains of people who died in July’s MH17 plane crash in eastern Ukraine.

Accident investigators have discovered more human remains at the crash site in the past few days.

It is unclear how many people are involved in Saturday’s flight, which will be received with the same ceremony and police escorts as earlier flights.

All 298 people on board the Malaysian Airways flight were killed when it was apparently brought down by a missile.

Efforts to recover all the bodies and personal effects of the victims have been hampered by fighting between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russian rebels in the region.
