KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's government said on Friday the ceasefire with separatist rebels at the crash site of Malaysian airliner MH17 was still in force despite an announcement that it would be suspended until recovery work there resumed.
"The order of the President of Ukraine for a ceasefire in the area of the search operation is continuing," the government said in a statement.
It did not explain why the government said on Thursday that the ceasefire was being suspended following a decision by an international team of experts to halt recovery efforts there because of continued fighting.
