Neerkant, Netherlands – Around the world mourning continues for 298 victims on board doomed Malaysia Flight 17.
In a small village outside Amsterdam, an entire family – six in all – is wiped away. The victims, 15-year-old Jinte, her parents, brother and two sisters heading to a summer vacation in Kuala Lumpur. Now the family is among those being brought out of rubble and placed on a refrigerated train presumably bound for Donetsk, a rebel-held city in the Ukraine.
That`s the same spot where rebel leaders are talking, saying they recovered the flight`s black boxes and will hand them over to the International Civil Aviation Organization.
Secretary of State John Kerry said there`s mounting evidence that a Russian- made missile brought down the airliner. “We know with confidence that Ukrainians did not have such a system anywhere around or near the vicinity at that point in time so it obviously points a very clear finger at separatists,” Kerry said.
Ukrainian officials agree and go a step further, accusing Russia of hiding its terrorist activity and direct involvement.
In Malaysia, a predominately Muslim country, faith calls on them to bury the dead within 24 hours of their death. Now there is outrage to have the bodies turned over.
Who did this and why? Two simple questions to answer during a very complicated investigation.
