By Roberta Rampton and Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will not rest until justice is done in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 over eastern Ukraine, President Barack Obama vowed in a condolence book for the nearly 300 victims on Tuesday. Obama visited the Netherlands Embassy in Washington to sign the book. Of the 298 people killed in the July 17 shootdown over an area controlled by pro-Russian separatists, 193 were Dutch.

Bowing to international pressure Monday, pro-Moscow separatists released a train packed with bodies and handed over the black boxes from the downed Malaysia Airlines plane, four days after it plunged into rebel-held eastern Ukraine. (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky)Dutch experts on Tuesday prepared to fly out bodies recovered from downed Malaysian flight MH17, as Europe moved to punish Russia for fanning the rebellion in eastern Ukraine that it believes led to the crash. The remains of victims were taken by train to the government-held Ukrainian city of Kharkiv five days after the jet was brought down, after rebels controlling the crash site finally released them and the plane's black boxes under intense international pressure. Dutch experts said they were only sure 200 bodies had been delivered so far -- less than what the pro-Russian rebels had promised. International monitors also said some remains remain left rotting under the sweltering summer heat in the vast crash site in rebel-held east Ukraine.
