Armed Australian soldiers, police to deploy to MH17 crash site

A proposed multinational force to further secure the MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine will now include over 100 armed Australian police and soldiers. The move comes shortly after 40 unarmed Dutchmen had been deployed to “€œfurther stabilize the area.”€

The additional Australian personnel were discussed by Prime Minister Tony Abbott with President Putin, and will join a contingent of 90 Australian Federal Police (AFP) currently in London, awaiting an order for deployment.
