White House lays out conditions for Ukraine plane probe

The United States called for an unimpeded and prompt probe into the apparent shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over rebel-held eastern Ukraine, and said evidence from the crash site must not be moved. In calls with pro-Western Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, US President Barack Obama put down an early marker on the necessary conditions for an air accident investigation that will have to take place in the middle of an escalating civil war. More than 150 Dutch citizens are believed to be among the dead when the Malaysian Airlines jet crashed. The White House said that Obama told Rutte the United States was prepared to contribute “immediate assistance” for “a prompt, full, credible and unimpeded international investigation.”
