Russia under fire as train with MH17 bodies leaves rebel station

US President Barack Obama arrives to speak to the press on Ukraine outside the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, DC, on July 21, 2014Western powers on Monday ratcheted up the pressure on Moscow over the Malaysian plane disaster, as a train loaded with some 280 bodies was finally allowed to leave a rebel-held station four days after the jet crashed in strife-torn east Ukraine. With global fury mounting over the limited access given to investigators in the aftermath of the crash, the insurgents blamed for hampering the probe pledged to hand over two black boxes recovered from the plane to Malaysia. The move came after US President Barack Obama insisted that Moscow force pro-Russian insurgents controlling parts of east Ukraine to cooperate with an international probe into the disaster, and said chaos at the impact site was an “insult” to families of the victims. Moscow, which has drawn ire for failing to rein in the rebels, backed a UN Security Council resolution condemning the downing of the plane and demanding access to the crash site.
