International monitors attempted to gather information from the Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine on Thursday, while rescuers began moving bodies, wrapped in black bags, away from the crash site.

Ukraine on Saturday accused Russia of helping separatist rebels destroy evidence at the crash site - a report the rebels denied.

Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council Spokesperson, accused pro-Russia separatists of removing bodies from the site and transferring them to Donetsk.

Speaking at a news conference in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, Lysenko alleged that the bodies had been removed in order to hide evidence and that an order had been made to find "traces of the rocket that was fired" at the plane.

Flight 17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was carrying 283 passengers and 15 crew on Thursday when it was shot down in eastern Ukraine close to the Russian border, an area that has seen months of clashes between government troops and pro-Russia separatists.
