a black box from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17The first bodies from flight MH17 arrived in the Netherlands on Wednesday almost a week after it was shot down over Ukraine, as the conflict flared yet again near the Malaysian airliner's crash site. Uniformed Dutch military personnel solemnly hoisted 40 wooden coffins from two planes and placed them in individual hearses at Eindhoven airport in the south of the country in a powerfully sombre ceremony, as a trumpeter played the Last Post and a large crowd of the bereaved watched. The Netherlands has been united in grief and growing anger because of delays in getting bodies home and over the way pro-Russian separatists have treated the crash site, bodies and personal possessions. The planes left from Kharkiv in Ukraine, where the remains were carried on board by army cadets before a small party of officials.

Jury selection starts Monday, July 21, 2014, in a trial that will put Wafer's self-defense claim to a tough test. The 19-year-old woman, Renisha McBride, was drunk but unarmed when she climbed the steps of his Dearborn Heights porch, 3 ½ hours after crashing her car a few blocks away. Roused from sleep by the sound of pounding in the wee hours, he grabbed his shotgun, opened the front door and blasted her in the face. (AP Photo/Detroit Free Press, Eric Seals, File) DETROIT NEWS OUT; NO SALESDETROIT (AP) — A suburban Detroit man who killed an unarmed woman on his porch was rocked out of sleep by a series of "boom, boom, boom" pounding sounds outside his home, causing him to grab a shotgun, open the front door and fire, a defense lawyer told jurors during opening statements Wednesday.
