UNDATED (AP) - A Ukrainian security spokesman says data from the recovered flight data recorders shows the Malaysian plane downed over eastern Ukraine suffered "massive explosive decompression" after it was hit by fragments from a missile.

The data recorders were sent to experts in Britain for examination. Meanwhile, an international police team failed to reach the crash site again today after clashes raged in a town on the road to the area.

Some of the 298 bodies from the downing of the plane have not yet been recovered.
