Western powers yesterday, ratcheted up the pressure on Moscow over the Malaysian plane disaster, as a train loaded with some 280 bodies was finally allowed to leave a rebel-held station 4 days after the jet crashed in strife-torn east Ukraine.

With global fury mounting over the limited access given to investigators in the aftermath of the crash, the insurgents blamed for hampering the probe pledged to hand over two black boxes recovered from the plane to Malaysia.

The move came, after US President Barack Obama insisted, that Moscow force pro-Russian insurgents controlling parts of east Ukraine to cooperate with an international probe into the disaster, and said chaos at the impact site was an "insult" to families of the victims.
