31 July 2014 Last updated at 12:38 BST

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has called for an "immediate cessation" to violence around the area of Eastern Ukraine where flight MH17 was shot down.

Speaking at a joint press conference with the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, he said this was necessary to ensure "dignity and a decent funeral" for the victims.

The flight was shot down on 17 July but fighting between Ukraine and separatist rebels in the east of the country has prevented a proper investigation.
