Four days after the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, Dutch forensics experts are finally being allowed onto the scene. However, the site is still being guarded by armed rebels, who are making it very difficult for investigators to move in and out. The rebels also control much of the access to the bodies, most of which have been moved, decomposed, or otherwise tampered with. These Dutch experts have arrived to review remains of the victims, that is, if they can get to them.
The forensic experts are in the town of Torez, where many of the bodies have been put onto refrigerated rail cars. However, the train cannot leave, as Ukrainian prime minister Arseniy P. Yatsenyuk says the rebels controlling the area are preventing the train from moving. Thus far, the experts have only been able to inspect the bodies on the train. In Yatsenyuk's exact words, "These bloody guerrillas do not allow the train to leave the area."
Over the weekend, tensions increased between Russia and the rest of the world, specifically the nations from where most of the victims were from, such as Australia, the Netherlands, and the U.K. Some nations are pushing for increased sanctions against Russia, effective immediately.
