Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17

Access to crash site is limited

18 Jul, 2014

A group of 21 international monitors is allowed only limited access to the crash site. Michael Bociurkiw, spokesman for Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, says the group was not given the access they expected. He tells CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that the group was “only allowed access to about a 200-meter strip” for about 75 minutes at the site, which he says was guarded by armed men in uniform:

One of our top priorities was to find out what happened to the black boxes. No one was there to answer those questions.
