Malaysia Airlines on Friday revised upward the number of Dutch nationals killed in the MH17 disaster to 189 as it confirmed the identities of dozens more passengers.

The airline has said 298 people ― 283 passengers, including three infants of various nationalities, and 15 Malaysian crew ― were killed when the plane went down Thursday in strife-torn eastern Ukraine.

The Boeing 777 came down in cornfields in the separatist-held region, with the United States claiming it was shot down in a missile attack, a possible casualty of Ukraine’s battle with pro-Russian rebels.
