A train carrying the remains of victims of the Malaysian airliner which crashed in Ukraine has arrived in the city of Kharkiv, outside rebel territory. The transfer of bodies from flight MH17 follows international pressure on pro-Russia rebels, amid accusations that the aircraft was shot down. Meanwhile international monitors say parts of the wreckage have been changed since they first saw it. The Boeing 777 crashed last Thursday, killing all 298 people on board.
