A group of 30 Malaysian experts flew out for Ukraine overnight. Malaysian Interior Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said one of the tasks of the work was to gather evidence pieces to present them to a court to establish whether the airliner was shot down by a missile. The work of experts became possible after an agreement on a ceasefire was reached on September 5 and the OSCE guaranteed safety.
Experts are expected to begin the search operation as soon as possible as it may begin snowing in a few weeks at the crash site and it will complicate the work, the minister said.
The last search operation lasted less than a week and was ended on August 6 because of safety risks for international experts.
Malaysian police chief Halid Abu Bakar said the specialists examined less than a half of the area and did not take any fragments from the site that time.
