UPDATED Dutch foreign minister Bert Koenders says they will do everything they can to recover all the remains of the victims from downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17

A picture taken on November 7, 2014, shows parts of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 at the crash site in the village of Hrabove (Grabovo), some 80km east of Donetsk. Dutch investigators have found more human remains at the crash site of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing shot down over war-torn Ukraine, an official with the separatist authorities in the region said Friday. However, it was too early to say whether the remains were those of people killed in the downing of flight MH17 or combatants in the fighting that has taken place in the same area between rebels and Ukrainian government forces.
