Bodies of air crash victims in Ukraine-controlled area -Dutch PM

AMSTERDAM, July 22 (Reuters) - The bodies of some of the 298 people killed in the downing of a Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine last week are in a part of the country controlled by the Ukraine government, the Dutch prime minister said on Tuesday.

Mark Rutte said in a statement that the train with the bodies of the victims had left Donetsk at 0200 GMT and would arrive in a sealed-off area near Kharkhiv at around 1000 GMT. (Reporting by Harro ten Wolde, editing by John Stonestreet)
