Search for Crash Victims in Ukraine Halted

Ukraine - The head of the Dutch team investigating the scene where flight MH-17 crashed, gave his final media briefing this weekend. The search for the remains of victims of the disaster was halted on Wednesday by the Dutch Prime Minister, because he said it was too dangerous to continue. The head of the Dutch mission said they would return as soon as the situation around the crash site quiets.
"When the safety and security of my officers is at stake then there is always a reason to have a pause, and I think that was the issue over here."
Flight MH-17 crashed in Eastern Ukraine on July 17th. All 298 people on board, most of who were Dutch, were killed.
