A Dutch led forensic team has managed to identify the remains of 42 more victims who perished aboard Malaysia Airlines flight 17, according to the Netherlands' Justice Ministry.
Of these victims 21 were Dutch nationals and 21 were other nationalities, they said. A total of 65 victims have now been identified.
They said the relatives of the victims have been notified but at the request of the embassies of the countries concerned, they have not announced the specific nationalities of the non-Dutch victims.
A total of 228 coffins were brought to the Netherlands for analysis but it is not known how many victims that represents.
The forensic experts at a military base in Hilversum are using DNA samples and dental records in a process expected to take months.
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.
