ROZSYPNE, Ukraine –  As fighting continued to rage in eastern Ukraine, an international team of investigators on Thursday managed to reach the crash site of the Malaysia Airline Flight 17 for the first time since it was brought down by a missile two weeks ago.

Clashes along routes to the wreckage site between government troops and pro-Russian separatist rebels had kept the delegation from reaching the area to retrieve bodies that have been lying in open fields.

But the investigators were allowed through a checkpoint leading to the crash site at the village of Rozsypne early Thursday afternoon by a rifle-toting militiaman who then fired a warning shot to prevent reporters from accompanying the convoy.

The militiaman, who gave his name only as Sergei, told Associated Press journalists that fighting was still ongoing in Rozsypne.

CNn had a guy on last night that showed what they think happened to the jet after it was hit.

Terrific. A beautifully cold trail. One that has also probably been thoroughly sanitized.
