Dutch investigators have arrived in Torez in Ukraine, where the remains of victims of the Malaysia Airlines plane crash are being stored.

The three forensic scientists are aiming to start work on identifying the 196 bodies kept there on a refrigerated train.

All 298 people on the Malaysia Airlines flight died when a missile reportedly hit it on Thursday.

The freight train with its five sealed wagons has been standing at Torez railway station, 15km (nine miles) from the crash site.
