Flight MH17: Searching for answers
Kiev, Ukraine (AP) -- Ukraine's separatist rebels say they've found "most" of the recording devices from the Malaysia Airlines plane that was shot down over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine.
An assistant to the insurgency's military commander, Igor Girkin, says Girkin is still considering whether to give international crash investigators access to the sprawling crash site.
Any investigators would need specific permission from the rebel leadership before they could safely film or take photos at the scene.
This comes as rescue workers, policemen and even off-duty coal miners continue to comb the area for debris.
The cause of the crash was not immediately clear.
Ukraine has accused pro-Russian separatists who control the area of shooting down the plane, a claim they denied. American intelligence authorities said a surface-to-air missile brought the plane down but were still working on who fired the missile.
An Associated Press journalist saw bodies and body parts strewn across the field outside the village of Rozsypne about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away from the crash site.
