And now, turning to the latest on the downing of Malaysia Airlines MH17,
The bodies of the victims have begun a long journey back to the Netherlands, where they boarded the ill-fated airliner some five days ago.
A train carrying the bodies from the crash site in rebel-held eastern Ukraine arrived in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv on Tuesday.
Upon their arrival in the Dutch city of Eindhoven on Wednesday, the bodies will be identified and repatriated.
The Netherlands will mark Wednesday as a day of national mourning.
Meanwhile, in the world of diplomacy, in Brussels on Tuesday, EU foreign ministers discussed what to do about the crisis in a solemn meeting that was dominated by the crash of MH17.
They again discussed sanctions against Russia, talking about them, but said they wouldn't impose them unless Moscow swiftly acts to resolve issues with pro-Russian rebels who are believed to have shot down the passenger jet.
