MH17 bodies leave Ukraine rebel area and reach Kharkiv

A train carrying the remains of victims of the Malaysian airliner which crashed in Ukraine has arrived in the city of Kharkiv, outside rebel territory.

The transfer of bodies from flight MH17 follows international pressure on pro-Russia rebels, amid accusations that the aircraft was shot down.

Speaking in Kiev, the BBC's Tim Willcox said it was a "very traumatic time" for families, some of whom may never get back their relatives' remains.
