Russia apparently shot down Malaysian Airlines flight #MH17 over Ukraine. The flight was carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew onboard.
Flight MH17 departed Amsterdam at 12.15pm (Amsterdam local time) and was estimated to arrive at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 6.10 am (Malaysia local time) the next day.
The passenger jet was reportedly shot down in a war-torn area of eastern Ukraine near the Russian border, killing all people aboard. The Ukrainian president and the Pro-Russia rebels in that area denied involvement in causing the crash.
