Nine of the 298 victims of July’s MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine are still unaccounted for, Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders has said.
He was speaking after a ceremony in Kharkiv as another five coffins with remains were flown to the Netherlands.
The Boeing 777 Malaysian Airlines was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed in territory held by pro-Russian rebels.
The majority of the victims – 193 – were Dutch.
Both rebels and their supporters in Russia have denied shooting the aircraft down.
Investigators have struggled to gain access to the site as clashes continue nearby between Ukrainian government forces and the separatists.
