21 more bodies recovered from Ukraine plane crash

21 more bodies have been found around the area where Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was downed last week, killing all 298 people on board.

Local rescue workers piled 21 black body bags by the side of the road in Hrabove early this morning. It is unclear when they will be transported to refrigerated traini cars in Torez, where the other bodies are being held.

Pro-Russian rebels put nearly 200 bodies into four refrigerated boxcars in Torez yesterday, and cranes were seen at the crash site, moving chunks of the plane.
