Malaysia’s Prime Minister says remains are still at the crash site of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in Eastern Ukraine.

Prime Minister Najib Razak says sending investigators to retrieve body parts scattered across the fields of Eastern Ukraine is a top priority.

He says Malaysia will work closely with Australia, Ukraine and the Netherlands to ensure the remains are returned to their families.

The Boeing 777 was headed from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down back in July.

Of the 298 people who were killed, around two-thirds were from the Netherlands.
