The Danish foreign ministry has said that it does not believe any Danes were on the Malaysia Airlines flight that crashed into eastern Ukraine on Thursday, killing all on board.
A government official said that the foreign ministry had gone through flight MH17's passenger list and found no indications that there were Danish citizens aboard. Likewise, no one has contacted the ministry to report missing family members.
"We have worked closely with our ambassadors in the Netherlands, Ukraine and Malaysia to check all of the information and we have no reason to believe that there were Danes among the victims," Catherine Uttenthal of the foreign ministry's citizen services department (Borgerservice) told Danmarks Radio.
The Boeing 777, travelling from Amsterdam Schiphol to Kuala Lumpur, was blown out of the sky at 10,000 metres, by what US officials claim was a Russian-made surface to air missile.
