Day of mourning in Malaysia for MH17 victims

Malaysians are marking the return of the remains of the first 20 victims from the downing of flight MH17 over Ukraine in July.

The bodies were flown home from Amsterdam with full state honours and landed around 10:00 local time (02:00 GMT).

A moment of silence was held on their arrival.
