Monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe were not able to secure an access corridor on Friday to the site where a Malaysian airliner crashed in eastern Ukraine, the OSCE's chairman Thomas Greminger said on Friday, July 18.

"They did not have the kind of access that they expected. They did not have the freedom of movement that they need to do their job. The crash site is not sealed off," Thomas Greminger told Reuters by telephone.

Greminger, who is Switzerland's ambassador to the European rights and security watchdog, said a team of 17 monitors had stayed for about 75 minutes and was now returning to Donetsk. He said the team would try again on Saturday, July 19 for more access. In its microblog on Twitter , the OSCE has denied that investigators were fired at when they monitored the scene.

As it was reported earlier, 30 inspectors from the OSCE came to provide a thorough and impartial investigation into what caused the crash, which killed all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board MH17, en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, AFP agency reports.
