KHARKIV, Ukraine (AP) -- A train bearing the remains of people who died in the Malaysia Airlines crash arrived in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv on Wednesday on their way to the Netherlands.
An AP reporter saw the train Tuesday as it pulled into a train station in Kharkiv, where Ukrainian authorities have set up their crash investigation center.
For many, it is the next stop on their journey home to the Netherlands. Of the 298 who died, 193 were Dutch citizens.
Oleksander Kharchenko, spokesman for the state committee on the crash, said "we will do our best" to send the bodies to the Netherlands on Tuesday. Ukraine has agreed to send remains of all the victims there for identification and forensic investigation.
