Victim's family to be brought back from Geneva

MH17 Family members of Noor Rahimah Mohd Noor, one of the passengers on board Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH17, who are in Geneva, Switzerland, will be brought back to Malaysia.

Noor Rahimah's husband, Hipo Litoner, in his 70s, and their children, daughter Ann Rahimah and son Johan, both in their 20s, are scheduled to arrive in Malaysia this Saturday.

Noor Rahimah's younger sister, Noor Aini Mohd Noor, in her 50s, accompanied by daughter, Jasmin Rahman, 24, and a MAS official, are scheduled to leave for Geneva tomorrow to bring them home.

"After the crash incident, they have kept to themselves and this worries us.

"I told this to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak during a meeting yesterday and he suggested that Noor Rahimah's family be brought home here," Noor Aini told reporters when met at the Marriot Hotel in Putrajaya today.

Noor Rahimah had been residing in Geneva for the past 30 years and was travelling alone to return to Malaysia to celebrate Aidilfitri with her family in Perak.

The MAS flight, MH17, was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it went down in Ukraine. It was carrying 298 people - 283 passengers and 15 crew.

The aircraft had left Amsterdam at 12.15pm (Netherlands time) Thursday and was to have arrived at KLIA at 6.10am (Malaysian time) Friday.
