A team of 70 international experts got to work Friday recovering bodies at the crash site of flight MH17 in war-torn eastern Ukraine, the Dutch justice ministry said. "Dutch and Australian experts arrived at the crash site on Friday morning.... The 70 experts will conduct search operations in several places at the crash site," it said in a statement. "After yesterday’s reconnaissance, we have now managed to get our experts on site," said Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg, the Dutch police official sent to Ukraine to head up the mission there. Efforts to recover remaining bodies from the crash site have been hampered by fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists.

Flares light up the sky over Gaza City, Friday Aug. 1, 2014. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel will destroy Hamas' tunnel network in the Gaza Strip designed for deadly attacks inside Israel, "with or without a cease-fire." Israel expanded what started July 8 as an aerial campaign against Hamas and widened it into a ground offensive on July 17. Since then, Israel says the campaign has concentrated on destroying cross-border tunnels militants constructed to carry out attacks inside Israeli territory and ending rocket attacks on its cities. (AP Photo/Dusan Vranic)GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A three-day Gaza cease-fire that began Friday quickly unraveled, with Israel and Hamas accusing each other of violating the truce as four Palestinians were killed in a heavy exchange of fire in the southern town of Rafah.
