Ukrainian rebels have allowed international police personnel to secure the investigating team working on MH17 crash site in a new agreement finalised with Malaysia, a prime minister's office statement said Sunday.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott Friday said his country's military personnel along with armed police would be deployed to secure the MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine.

As many as 68 Malaysian police personnel would leave Kuala Lumpur for the crash site Wednesday as part of the international deployment, the PM office said.
