Ukraine MH17: Air crash team finds human remains

A team of 70 Dutch and Australian forensic experts has found human remains at the site of the flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine.

They made their discovery on their first full day of searching at the site, an area of some 35 sq km (13.5 sq miles) inside the conflict zone.

Local search parties found 227 of the 298 victims earlier and they were flown to the Netherlands for identification.

Presidents Obama and Putin discussed the crisis by telephone on Friday.

Tom Burridge reports.
