Western leaders are accusing pro-Russian rebels of tampering with the 42-square-mile crash site in eastern Ukraine where a Malaysian jetliner went down with last week, killing all 298 on board.
The rebels have piled nearly 200 victims' bodies into four refrigerated boxcars, while cranes at the scene have been moving big chunks of the Boeing 777.
Secretary of State John Kerry says there's "powerful" evidence that the rebels shot down the plane with a Russian surface-to-air missile and training. In a series of interviews on the Sunday talk shows, Kerry said Moscow been supporting, arming and training the separatists.
Leaders of Britain, France, Germany and Australia all spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin by phone Sunday, urging him to use his influence on the separatists to ensure the victims could be repatriated and international investigators could have full access to collect evidence.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, whose country lost 28 citizens in the tragedy, says Putin "said all the right things" during their telephone conversation about ensuring an international investigation into the disaster. Abbott told Sydney Radio 2GB that to this point the site "is being treated more like a garden clean-up than a forensic investigation" and called that "completely unacceptable."
