Latest on Malaysia flight 17

As the recovery of bodies continues at the site where a Malaysian jet went down, President Obama attempts to gather more international support for further sanctions against Russia.

All 298 people aboard the flight were killed in Thursday’s crash.

The flight, from Amsterdam to Kuala Lampur, crashed in Eastern Ukraine. The White House suspects separatists used equipment supplied by Russia to shoot down the plane.

A team of Malaysian investigators claims it was denied access to the site control by rebels.

Pro-russian rebels only allowed investigators to carry out a partial inspection.

Ukraine’s government reports 181 bodies recovered so far.

The full list of the passengers will be released later today.
