Non-living items on board included aircraft parts, diplomatic papers and flowers, according to a cargo manifest released by Malaysia Airlines.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 tore apart Thursday in the sky over Torez.

A surface-to-air missile, possibly fired by pro-Russian rebels, took down the jetliner as it traveled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, the United States said.

The plane had 298 people aboard, including 80 children, the United Nations said. Debris and bodies remain strewn across the countryside in eastern Ukraine.

Two days after the jet crashed, some bodies remained strapped in seat belts.
