"Malaysia is deeply concerned that the crash site has not been properly secured," said Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai.

Malaysia on Saturday urged warring sides in strife-torn eastern Ukraine to secure the crash site of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner that was shot down by a missile two days ago.

“Malaysia is deeply concerned that the crash site has not been properly secured,” said Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai.

“The integrity of the site has been compromised, and there are indications that vital evidence has not been preserved in place,” Mr. Liow said.

Maintaining that MH17 did not stray into restricted airspace and was on an approved flight path, Mr. Liow said: “But on the ground, the rules of war were broken.” “This outrage cannot go unpunished,” Mr. Liow added.

“Malaysia condemns this brutal act of aggression, and calls for those responsible to be found, and to face the full force of justice without delay.” He said that while the downing of the plane has become a geopolitical issue, “we must not forget that it is a human tragedy.”
