SEPANG – The remains of two more Malaysian victims on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 – Shell employee Tambi Jiee, 49, and one-year-old Benjamin Lee Jian Han – have been brought home.
The commercial flight carrying their remains reached the the Bunga Raya complex at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here about 8.30am Tuesday.
Those present, including their families, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and other Cabinet ministers, observed a minute of silence.
Two hearses carrying the remains were driven past the families and dignitaries.
Lee was travelling with his mother – Universiti Malaysia Sabah lecturer Ng Shi Ing, 33 – and aunt Elisabeth Ng Lye Ti, 30, on the ill-fated flight when it crashed in Ukraine on July 17, killing 283 passengers and 15 crew members.
The bodies of Shi Ing and Lye Ti were sent back separately earlier. – Bernama
