U.N. aviation body to form task force on airline safety after Ukraine crash

MONTREAL, July 29 (Reuters) - The U.N.’s aviation body said on Tuesday it would convene a high-level meeting next February on airline safety in the wake of the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine.

The International Civil Aviation Organization also said it was setting up a task force with the airline industry and other aviation bodies to look at how safety information can be collected and distributed properly.
