KHARKIV, Ukraine (AP) Ukraine is preparing a departure ceremony for the bodies of victims of the Malaysia Airlines disaster, which are being flown to the Netherlands.

Deputy Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said Wednesday's ceremony was set for 11 a.m. local time (0800 GMT) at the airport in Kharkiv. Dutch officials say at least 200 bodies had arrived there in refrigerated railroad cars a day earlier.

U.S. officials say Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was probably shot down by a missile on Thursday, and fell on territory controlled by pro-Russian separatists who have been battling the Kiev government since April. The crash killed all 298 people on board, most of them Dutch citizens.
