Black boxes of MH17 recovered by rebels, claims separatist leader

A separatist leader in eastern Ukraine says rebels have recovered the black boxes from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

Alexander Borodai said the devices will be handed over to the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

He also said the bodies recovered from the crash site in eastern Ukraine would remain in refrigerated containers at a train station in the town of Torez until the arrival of an international aviation delegation.

The plane was apparently shot down on Thursday over disputed territory, killing 298 passengers and crew.
