Wreckage, remains still at MH17 crash site
There are still personal belongings and wreckage in the area of the flight MH17 crash site. This is according to Jeroen Akkermans of RTL Nieuws, who went to the site now that the fighting has moved on and the area is accessible again. According to ED, Akkermans came across many personal belongings lying on the ground and sometimes even hanging in trees and shrubs. He also saw a lot of debris. The journalist thinks that there may also still be human remains on the site. According to the newspaper, the Safety Board has stated that it is aware that there is still wreckage and personal belongings in Ukraine. The disaster with Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in July last year took the lives of all 298 people on board, which included 196 Dutch residents. From next month relatives of the victims will be allowed to view the wreckage at the Gilze Rijen airbase.
