Units of special forces now on the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali are now coming back to the Netherlands to be then sent to Donetsk, the paper said.

Unarmed royal military policemen will go to Ukraine on Friday not to provide security but help criminalists heading for the site to find the remains, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Thursday.

The international experts still have not made it to the site to find out what caused the tragedy because of inadequate security in the area.
