Malayasian Airlines Crash Team Gain Access to New Debris Field

Nine months after Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed in eastern Ukraine, investigators have gained access to the area where the last unexamined wreckage lies and hope to recover remains of the last two victims.
Heavy fighting has stopped the Dutch-led team collecting evidence from a field of debris in the north-west of the crash site that was until recently on the front line of the conflict between Moscow-backed rebels and Ukrainian government troops.
Theo ten Haaf, an air force commander in charge of security, said. "Now that the front line has moved, we can get there safely,"
The remaining aircraft fragments could yield information that might help show the cause of the crash, though the focus of the team of 30 Dutch, Australian and Malaysian experts will be on the remains of the 298 passengers aboard the Boeing 777.
