Malaysia Airlines Releases Flight MH17 Passenger Manifest

Malaysia Airlines has released a full list of passengers aboard the plane that was shot down over Ukraine Thursday.

All those on board Flight MH17 died. According to the passenger manifest, 193 of the 298 people were Dutch. All of the 15 crew were Malaysian, as were 28 of the passengers. One victim was Canadian.

Investigators at the crash site in eastern Ukraine are working inside a conflict zone. Rebel forces occupying the area have allowed rescue workers into the area to gather bodies but have not allowed them to collect evidence, Reuters is reporting.

"The fighters are taking away all that has been found," said a Ukrainian security council spokesman.

International monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said that gunmen prevented them from entering the crash site.
