Malaysia Airlines crash site access limited

A spokesman for 21 international monitors who on Friday visited the Malaysia Airlines crash site in eastern Ukraine said the team wasn’t “given the access that we expected.”

Michael Bociurkiw, spokesman for the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe team, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour the group was “only allowed access to about a 200-meter strip” for about 75 minutes at the site, which he said was guarded by armed men in uniform. “One of our top priorities was to find out what happened to the black boxes. No one was there to answer those questions,” he said.
