People filled a highway overpass in the Netherlands on Thursday to watch as hearses passed by carrying the remains of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 victims. For a second day, aircraft carrying remains of some of the passengers arrived in the Netherlands on Wednesday, where experts will work to identify them with DNA samples collected from relatives.
