Biloela MH17 family members' names released

THE names of a couple who were related to a Biloela family and who were killed in the latest Malaysian Airlines tragedy have been released.

Albert and Marie Rizk from Victoria were extended family members of Irene and George Burrows, who lost their son and daughter-in-law in the Malaysian Airlines MH370 mystery disappearance earlier this year.

Mr and Mrs Rizk were returning to Australia from Europe when the plane crashed in separatist-controlled eastern Ukraine.

Mr and Mrs Burrows are still coming to grips with the loss of Rodney and Mary Burrows in the MH370 flight, which disappeared on March 8.

On Friday they were hit with the news that their Melbourne relatives had been killed.

At least 36 Australians were among the 298 passengers on board the MH17 flight.

The family has not commented on Friday's events.
