Cover-up? Rebels trying to wipe off links to air crash

  • Rebels in eastern Ukraine are trying to cover up links to the missile system that may have been used to shoot down the Malaysia Airlines passenger plane, reports quoting defense and intelligence officials in the west said.

    All 298 passengers and crew perished in the crash.

    Suspicions of an attempted cover-up were strengthened after pro-Russian fighters denied unhindered access of the crash site to observers belonging to the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe. 

    Samantha Power, the American ambassador to the United Nations, stressed on the need for keeping all evidence at the crash site “undisturbed”.
