A small team of Dutch and Australian police have recovered more bodies from the MH17 crash site in Ukraine.

POLICE are trawling through hundreds of never-before-seen images of the MH17 crash, in a highly-sensitive new phase of the investigation.

News Corp can reveal a crack team of Dutch officers is trying to reconstruct the moments immediately leading up to and following the downing of the Boeing 777 on July 17.

The officers are in Amsterdam trawling through almost 200 photographs and videos uploaded to a special Dutch police site by members of the public.

Police said yesterday the images — sent through after a public call for assistance — were still being collated and it was too early to say exactly what had been received.

They include pictures of the plane going down and the immediate aftermath of the scene in Eastern Ukraine.

Dutch police spokeswoman Lisette Koning told News Corp that investigators were also seeking images and video of the crash site in the time before the plane came down in a bid to piece together the incident.

She said they would like to see images from earlier this year and last year of the same area.

"We have asked people to upload videos and pictures from the time before the crash, during the crash and after the crash," Ms Koning said.

She said the plan was to reconstruct the incident in as much detail as possible.

"We are making a reconstruction from the site, how the site was before the crash, during the crash and after the crash," she said.

Dutch authorities say that the images will also assist with the victim identification process and identifying the personal possessions.

The Dutch Government has revised the figures, saying it has increased the number of Dutch victims to 196. One of those on the plane had a dual nationality and while travelling on a

Malaysia passport, also had Dutch nationality, the country's Justice Ministry said.

Attempts to conduct a full search and recovery mission and investigation have been hampered by fighting and the failure, until Thursday, of investigators to reach the crash zone to conduct a proper investigation and retrieve what could be up to 80 bodies which have lain there for two weeks now.

So far only one body has been positively identified — a Dutch male whose identity has not been revealed publicly.

A team of 200 disaster victim identification experts, including 38 from Australia, is working on a multinational team to identify the bodies brought back to the Netherlands from the Ukraine a week ago.

Authorities have warned it will take weeks and months before the bodies are all identified and that some victims may never be identified.

Malaysia has already signalled its desire to take control of bringing to justice those involved in bringing the plane down.

Speaking at The Hague, Amsterdam, after meeting with officials, the Malaysian Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail said Malaysia would endeavour to extradite the accused and have


Mr Abdul Gani cited the Civil Aviation Act, the Penal Code and the Security Offences (Special Measures) legislation and said Malaysian authorities were seeking advice on what legislation

would be used.
