The remains of 50 victims are expected to arrive in the Netherlands on Wednesday, Ukrainian officials said.

The arrival will mark a homecoming for many of the victims. Most of the 298 people on board the plane were from the Netherlands, which has declared Wednesday a national day of mourning, according to the media reports.

At least two aircraft - a Dutch and an Australian jet - will be transferring the remains Wednesday. It was not clear how many bodies will be on each plane.
