The risk of passenger planes flying over war zones after MH17 downing will be discussed at a special meeting of international aviation chiefs tomorrow.
The need for clarification on safe routes was emphasised when it emerged that some airlines were flying over war-torn areas that other carriers were avoiding -- such as Iraq.
Malaysia Airlines commercial director Hugh Dunleavy said: "Against the backdrop of increasingly volatile political situations around the world, such as Ukraine and Gaza, we as an industry must act now to create a system of approval that guarantees safe air passage for all commercial airlines."
The mother of the three Australian children killed on flight MH17 told a memorial service her "arms would always be reaching for them."
A woman has apparently posted pictures of herself on social media with mascara looted from the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.
A large section of plane wreckage and everyday carry-on items like chocolates remain scattered among the wild flowers at the crash site.
