Minister furious over claims 'bodies were dragged around' near MH17 crash site

Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans has said the Netherlands was "angry, furious" over claims that bodies were being dragged around the site where a Malaysian airliner crashed in eastern Ukraine.

We are already shocked by the news we got today of bodies being dragged around, of the site not being treated properly... People are angry, furious. Once we have the proof, we will not stop before the people are brought to justice. Not just the people who pulled the trigger but also those who made it possible. I think the international community needs to step up its efforts in this respect.

– Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans

At a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Timmermans said said the Netherlands wanted to know who was responsible for shooting down the airliner on Thursday.
