Three teams of international experts are at the crash site in eastern Ukraine where wreckage from Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 lies strewn over eight kilometres.

A member of the international monitoring team said pieces of the wreckage had been cut into and changed, possibly to remove bodies.

Pro-Russia separatists have handed over the two black box flight recorders.

A train with the remains of victims of the Malaysian airliner which crashed in Ukraine has arrived in the city of Kharkhiv, outside rebel territory.

The transfer of bodies from MH17 follows international pressure on pro-Russia rebels, amid accusations that the aircraft was shot down.

The rebels earlier handed over the "black box" flight recorders to Malaysian officials.

The Boeing crashed last Thursday, killing all 298 people on board.

Rebels in eastern Ukraine have handed over two flight-data recorders from the downed MH17 plane to Malaysian experts.

A senior rebel leader signed them over to the Malaysian officials at a meeting in the city of Donetsk.

The handover came hours after the UN Security Council voted unanimously to demand immediate international access to the crash site.

The Malaysian Airlines passenger jet crashed last Thursday, killing all 298 people on board.

Western nations say there is growing evidence that flight MH17 was hit by a Russian-supplied missile fired by rebels, but Russia has suggested Ukrainian government forces are to blame.

European Union foreign ministers are expected to discuss further measures against Russia later on Tuesday.

Both the EU and the US have imposed sanctions on Moscow following its annexation of Crimea and the outbreak of hostilities in eastern Ukraine.
