The Hague - International experts have suspended their search for body parts at the MH17 crash site on Wednesday because of deteriorating security in eastern Ukraine, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said.

“It doesn't make sense to continue with the repatriation in this manner,” the Dutch leader told a press conference in The Hague.
