Malaysian Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said that the bodies of 28 victims of the MH17 disaster have been identified as Malaysians by authorities in Amsterdam.

Malaysia announced a few days ago that the first consignment of bodies identified as Malaysians will arrive back in Kuala Lumpur on Friday. The government has declared that day as a national day of mourning.

Flight MH17 was downed on July 17 over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people aboard. Most of them are Dutch, Malaysian and Australian citizens.
