International police agency Interpol said on Tuesday one of its teams had started identifying victims of the Malaysia Airlines MH 17 flight that crashed over Ukraine last week.

"The remains of victims recovered so far were labeled and numbered before being transported in refrigerated freight wagons from Donetsk to the designated center of operations in Kharkiv where the Interpol Incident Response Team, along with other international disaster victim identification teams in place, will carry out preliminary examinations," the Lyon, France-based agency said in a statement.

It said that once the preliminary examinations are completed the victims will be transported to the Netherlands where fuller identification will be carried out.
