#MH17 | The United Nations' civil aviation body said on Tuesday it would quickly form a task force on airline safety, noting that while this was complex and politically sensitive, urgent action had to be taken after the recent downing of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine.
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the airline industry and other aviation groups said they would look at how safety information could be collected and distributed properly.
Western states, which believe that pro-Russia separatists brought down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 using a missile supplied by Russia, agreed on Tuesday to impose wider sanctions on the Russian economy.
