Amsterdam – Pieter-Jan Aalbersberg, the Head of the crashed Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 recovery team, on Friday, said more human remains and personal belongings have been recovered from the 2013 crash site of the airline.
He said that the work focused on three sites that had previously been inaccessible because of fighting in the region between Russian-backed separatists and government forces.
Aalbersberg said that in addition to the human remains found by the team, “there were personal property from the passengers, which was handed over by local residents, including jewellery.
He said work was expected to continue at the new sites for several more weeks, assuming that security situation would remain stable.
The head of the team said the situation, however, remained dangerous, as land mines were reportedly spread in the area.
He added that all the 298 passengers on board the plane, most of them Dutch, died in the plane crash. (dpa/NAN)[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10”]
