The airline releases the full list of passengers and crew members that were aboard flight MH17 when it was shot down. The airline appeals to family and friends of the victims to contact them in an effort to find next of kin. A spokesman says Malaysia Airlines is assessing security in Ukraine before making a decision about possibly flying next of kin to the country where 298 passengers and crew lost their lives. He says family members are being cared for in Amsterdam while a team from the airline, including security officials, is on the ground in Ukraine. He said the team was trying to travel “500 kilometers (310 miles) through difficult territory” to reach the area where wreckage of the Boeing 777 landed. The full manifest is listed here.
