Bodies Remain in Malaysia Airlines Debris Field 48 Hours After Downing

Alexander Ermochenko/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images(KIEV, Ukraine) -- Malaysia Airlines flight 17 remains scattered across Ukraine Saturday, 48 hours after the plane downed, killing the 298 people on board.

The crash site has been described as the biggest crime scene in the world. International inspectors say they've been given some access, but Ukraine has accused pro-Russian separatists who control the fields where the plane went down of trying to destroy evidence.

Ukraine's intelligence chief said the attack was supported and organized by Russia, and claimed to have the proof. But Russia has denied involvement and said Ukraine is responsible for breeding tension in its war-torn eastern countryside.

ABC's Kirit Radio says investigators have arrived at the scene to begin removing the bodies.
