KHARKIV: The scanning and tagging process of the remains of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH17 victims is expected to be completed on Friday.
National Security Council (MKN) principal assistant secretary Left Col Mohd Sakri Hussain said forensic experts from Malaysia, Netherlands and Australia have screened the bodies in more than two refrigerated coaches on Wednesday.
Four refrigerated coaches carried 282 bodies of flight MH17 victims from Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, near the Russian border to Kharkiv for tagging before being flown out to Eindhoven, the Netherlands, he said Wednesday.
The four refrigerated coaches were "shipped" Tuesday to the Ukraine city of Kharkiv on refrigerated train coaches, and then flown to Eindhoven from an airport in Kharkiv.
He said the remaining bodies were expected to be scanned and tagged by Friday.
On Wednesday, 56 bodies were flown to the Netherlands for identification.
MH17 was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it went down in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, near the Russian border last Thursday.
