Kiev, July 25 IANS | 5 months ago

Ukraine Friday said it will hand over the satellite images of the crash site of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 to international experts.

According to an order from President Petro Poroshenko, the experts, including those from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and law enforcement agencies of the countries which lost their citizens in the disaster, will be granted control of the images, Xinhua reported.

Flight MH17, while flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed July 17 in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board.

Reports indicated that the Boeing 777 crashed after being hit by a missile. US President Barack Obama said initial investigations showed that the missile was fired from an area in Ukraine controlled by anti-Kiev militants.
