Immediately realizing his error while on air, correspondent Colin Brazier said, “We shouldn’t really be doing this, I suppose.” as Sky News has said sorry for going through MH17 luggage a Sky News spokeswoman said:
But the damage had already been done. Hundreds of messages posted to Facebook and Twitter described the piece as “sickening” and “disrespectful.” to all the family’s involved.
Both Colin Brazier and Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News network have apologized for any offense caused, in a statement released by news channel.
Anger continues to grow over the handling of the crash site in the rebel-controlled area of east Ukraine is growing amid allegations of looting, tampering with evidence and investigators being stopped from examining the wreckage.
The United States Secretary of State John Kerry described reports of “drunken Ukraine separatists loading the remains of bodies into trucks in an unceremonious fashion.”
The rebel’s local leader, Alexander Borodai, has refuted accusations that his forces removed the bodies and denied responsibility for reports of stolen bank cards that were taken from the crash victims being used.
Borodai said he could not rule out the possibility that “some local residents could have searched the bodies.”
