Local residents left flowers and mementos at the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 near the settlement of Grabovo, Ukraine on Saturday to honor the tragedy's 298 victims.

World leaders on Sunday made a concerted effort to press for access to the crash site that is currently under the control of heavily armed pro-Russian separatist groups. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe has so-far been the only international body to have briefly accessed the site along the Ukraine-Russian border.
