Day of mourning in Netherlands as MH17 victims' bodies arrive

Bishkek (AKIpress) - mourning After spending days exposed to the elements on a Ukrainian field and then inside a refrigerated train, the first group of victims from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 will arrive in the Netherlands on Wednesday.

The remains of 50 victims are expected to arrive in the Netherlands on Wednesday, Ukrainian officials said.

The arrival will mark a homecoming for many of the victims. Most of the 298 people on board the plane were from the Netherlands, which has declared Wednesday a national day of mourning, according to the media reports.

At least two aircraft - a Dutch and an Australian jet - will be transferring the remains Wednesday. It was not clear how many bodies will be on each plane.
