HRABROVE, Ukraine, July 19 (Reuters) - Pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine allowed monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe to visit a part of the site where the Malaysian airliner crashed, a Reuters witness reported.

The witness said rebels gave the monitors access to a section which was covered in debris, including one of the aircraft's engines. They also allowed them to talk to locals.
