Malaysia Air made public early Friday a copy of MH17's cargo manifest, which details items that the plane carried. It includes live animals, and a few other notable items. Here's a partial list of things carried on board:
- Two live dogs.
- Five live birds.
- Four live pigeons.
- Some flowers and plants.
- Several helicopter parts.
- Some aircraft parts.
You can read the full manifest here.
Update: Removed reference to "a shipment of pot." The shipment is not marijuana; it's actually a shipment of a potentiostat galvanostat for an electrochemistry workstation.
