Dutch social media users are turning their profile photos black and tweeting the hashtag #BringThemHome as anger mounts that bodies from flight MH17 have not yet been repatriated from Ukraine. Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans was one of the first to make his Facebook cover photo black in a sign of mourning. Since then Twitter and Instagram users in the Netherlands and around the world have posted black screens or ribbons, demanding the 298 dead, 193 of them Dutch, be repatriated from war-torn Ukraine. A Dutch-language website and petition bringthemhome.nl has been set up calling for the bodies swift repatriation and for the International Criminal Court, based in The Hague, to prosecute those responsible for the disaster, believed to have been caused by a rebel missile.
