Pro-Russian separatists have ordered a team of international monitors to leave the MH17 crash site, with one of the militia telling them they had failed to follow his orders.

The team from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) were there to inspect the perimeter of the site and "see what measures are in place", according to the OSCE deputy head of mission, Alexander Hug.

The team were able to take some video footage of the site but were repeatedly warned by the separatists about where they could stand.

"Listen to me carefully: I am not subordinate of your Kiev and your (Ukrainian President Petro) Poroshenko," one militia commander told them.

Eventually one of the separatists told Mr Hug and his team to "get out of here" and return once they had agreed a time with the pro-Russians' commanders.
