    A man covers his nose to avoid the smell of bodies as members of the OSCE mission to Ukraine and Holland's National Forensic Investigations Team inspect a refrigerated train, seen in background, loaded with the bodies of passengers in Torez, eastern Ukraine, 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, Monday, July 21, 2014. Another 21 bodies have been found in the sprawling fields of east Ukraine where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed last week, killing all 298 people aboard.
