REAL WORLD
At least 10 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed close to the wreckage site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 as their convoy was ambushed by pro-Russian separatists.

The deadly attack took place early on Friday, less than 20km from the crash site, which has been the object of sustained battles for several days and still remains in rebel hands.

Ukraine's security spokesman, Vladislav Seleznev, slammed the rebels for violating a UN brokered "day of quiet," calling for a halt in fighting in the area.

"The militants are behaving in a cowardly and shameless fashion," Seleznev said.

"The used the 'day of quiet' just to fire on us."

Defence officials said another 13 servicemen remained unaccounted for after the attack.

Fighting in the area had previously hindered international investigators from finding and retrieving bodies that have been decaying in the summer heat.

On Friday, a team of several dozen international investigators finally descended on the crash site, now designated as a crime scene.

Investigators from the Netherlands, Australia and officials from the OSCE will focus on recovering several dozen bodies from the wreckage and also aim to retrieve the belongings of the 298 people killed when the Boeing 777 was shot down last month.

It is believed up to 80 bodies may still remain uncollected at the crash site, which is sprawled in a broad area across fields between two villages.

Despite both sides in the ongoing conflict in east Ukraine tentatively agreeing to a ceasefire around the crash zone, fighting is continuing nearby.

Cannibalism, murder and rape are just a part of everyday life in certain regions of Liberia. Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of this country's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. In 2009, we went to Liberia to rummage through the messy remains of a country ravaged by 14 years of civil war.

UPDATE: Charles G. Taylor, former President of Liberia and warlord, has been convicted by an international tribunal of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including rape, murder, and the use of child soldiers. He is the first head of state to be found guilty by an international court since the Nuremberg trials.
