MH17 Final Victims Depart

Two military cargo planes flew 38 more coffins carrying victims from the downed Malaysia Airlines flight for identification and investigation.

The cargo planes took off Saturday from the city of Kharkiv in Eastern Ukraine which is under government control.

The victim's bodies were brought from the wreckage site in territory held by Pro-Russia Rebels.

They later landed in Eindhoven, where the coffins were transferred to a fleet of hearses in a ceremony.

Officials have said the flights took the last of the 227 coffins containing victim's remains that had been brought to the city of Kharkiv by refrigerated train.

They say the exact number of people held in those coffins is still to be determined by forensic experts in the Netherlands.

International observers say there are still remains at the site of the crash, but access has been limited due to security concerns and rebel interference.

The plane went down last week, killing all 298 on board.
