22 July 2014 [12:10] - TODAY.AZ
Two black box flight recorders salvaged from the MH17 crash site and held by pro-Russian rebels have been handed over to Malaysian officials.

It comes after calls for international access to the site in eastern Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the refrigerated train storing bodies has finally left a station after it was held up by rebels.

According to an agreement between Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and pro-Russian separatist leader, Aleksander Borodai, the train is on its way to Kharviv, the second largest city in Ukraine.

Kharviv is 186 miles (300km)  northwest of the crash site. It is not yet known whether this will be the final destination of the train or whether it will travel.

The Malaysian Airlines passenger jet crashed last Thursday – killing all 298 people on board.
