Some 41 people aboard the Malaysia Airlines MH17 plane shot down by a missile over Ukraine on Thursday remain unidentified.

However, a spokesperson from the Foreign Ministry's citizen service told Ekstra Bladet this morning that there are no signs that any Danes were among the 298 people killed when the plane crashed in rebel-held territory close to the Russian border.

"The message is the same as yesterday. We still don't have any information if there were Danes aboard MH17," the spokesperson said.

Crashed with 298 passengers 
The Boeing 777 was carrying 298 passengers and crew and was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia Airlines reports that MH17 was carrying at least 154 Dutch nationals, 27 Australians, 43 Malaysians (including 15 crew members), 12 Indonesians and nine Brits. The other passengers were from Germany, Belgium, the Philippines and Canada.

Spookily, in reference to the Malaysian plane that went missing earlier this year, a Dutch passenger posted a photo of the plane onto his Facebook account, joking that this is what the plane looks like in case it goes missing.
