President Barack Obama is calling for international investigators to have “immediate and full access” to the site in eastern Ukraine where a passenger jet was shot down last week.
International monitors moved gingerly Saturday through fields reeking of the decomposing corpses that fell from a Malaysian airliner shot down over rebel-held eastern Ukraine, trying to secure the sprawling site in hopes that a credible investigation can be conducted.
A Chinese ship involved in the hunt for the missing Malaysian jetliner reported hearing a “pulse signal” Saturday in southern Indian Ocean waters with the same frequency emitted by the plane’s data recorders, as Malaysia vowed not to give up the search for the jet.
Thousands of people are joining the search for that missing plane, and they’re nowhere near Malaysia.
There were only a handful of Americans on the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing Saturday, but a local woman was one of them.
