MH17 crash: Kerry warns of more Russia sanctions

US Secretary of State John Kerry has warned of further sanctions against Russia unless it puts pressure on pro-Russian separatists near the MH17 crash site in Ukraine.

Mr Kerry said the rebels had displayed an "appalling disregard for human decency", with heavy fighting preventing some bodies being retrieved from the site 12 days after the disaster.

Speaking at a joint news briefing with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in Washington, he said Russia had failed to show "a shred of evidence" that it wished to end the bloodshed in Ukraine, and warned of further sanctions.
