HRABOVE, Ukraine (AP) — Dutch experts are calling for a full forensic sweep of the site where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down.

Members of the Dutch National Forensic Investigations Team toured farm fields Monday near the eastern Ukrainian village of Hrabove, where they observed some of the victims’ remains that had not yet been removed.

The plane was shot down Thursday. Of its 298 victims, 193 were Dutch citizens. Forensics team leader Peter Van Vilet said seeing the site was an emotional experience that gave him goose bumps despite the heat.

Investigations at the site have been hampered by the armed pro-Russia separatists who control the area.
