Body parts found by international investigators in the fields of eastern Ukraine where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 came down have been delivered in refrigerated trucks to the city of Kharkiv.

The trucks carried remains and personal belongings found during the first two days of a search aimed at finding those overlooked by local emergency workers after the plane carrying 298 people was shot down July 17.

The convoy arrived before dawn Sunday in Kharkiv, where the head of the Dutch-led recovery mission said they will checked before being flown to the Netherlands.

Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg said in a statement late Saturday that the entire area around a chicken farm near the village of Hrabove has now been searched and the investigators will move to other sites where aircraft wreckage was found.
