Taipei, July 20 (CNA) A photo issued by the European Pressphoto Agency (EPA) Sunday clearly shows a postcard addressed to a resident in Taiwan found in the wreckage of the Malaysia Airlines aircraft shot down in Ukraine last Thursday. The postcard, sent from the RIJKS Museum in Amsterdam July 10, was addressed to a Mr. Tsai in Guishan, Taoyuan County, northern Taiwan, in which the sender wrote in Chinese about his or her trip to the Netherlands. The postcard was discovered in piles of mail retrieved from the wreckage of M17, which was shot down by a missile in northern Ukraine while flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. All 298 aboard were killed. None of the passengers aboard flight MH17 were Taiwanese, Foreign Ministry authorities said Saturday, citing information released by the Malaysian carrier. Taiwan police located Tsai in Guishan and informed him of the postcard Sunday. He told police that it was sent by a friend who was on a trip to Europe. The friend, whose gender was not released by police, wrote the postcard the second day after arrival in the Netherlands. (By Maubo Chang)
