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. The process could take months.
