Dozens of bodies from the site where a Malaysian airliner crashed in eastern Ukraine were put into refrigerated rail wagons overnight at a station in a town 15 km (9 miles) from the scene, rail workers said on Sunday.
Monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, accompanied by armed rebels, checked the wagons. A locomotive had been put at the head of the train, which one worker said would be sent southwest to an undisclosed location.
Western officials have voiced concern about the handling of the remains of the 298 people killed when the airliner crashed on Thursday and the Dutch foreign minister has said his country is "furious" to hear bodies were being "dragged around".
After lying there for two days in the summer heat, by Sunday the bodies had been removed from a large swathe of the crash site, leaving only bloodstained military stretchers along the side of the road.
