Australia wants security job for wronged countries

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has suggested that countries that have been "so wronged" take responsibility for securing the crime scene where the Malaysian jetliner was shot down in Ukraine. Abbott on Tuesday listed Malaysia, Netherlands as well as Australia among countries wronged when a Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down last week, with the loss of 298 lives. But he did not say whether Australia would be prepared to send troops or police to secure the site for independent investigators, saying the security arrangements were still under discussion among government leaders. Despite the United Nations Security Council unanimously backing an Australian-drafted resolution on Monday demanding that pro-Russian rebels controlling the crash site refrain from compromising evidence, Abbott said the site continued to be trampled.
