    Dutch investigators probing the July 2014 downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine wrapped up their examination of the crash site, the office of the Attorney General for The Netherlands said in a statement on Saturday evening.

    “Assisted by members of the OSCE mission, the Dutch specialists managed to reach the crash site in Donetsk region,” the statement said.

    The Dutch investigators took ground samples, determined the location of the mobile communication towers and examined the  performance of cellphone networks in eastern Ukraine.

    The obtained information will be studied and analyzed in The Netherlands.

    The prosecutors said the OSCE mission had been denied access to the neighboring Lugansk region.
