    A Malaysian airliner was shot down over eastern Ukraine by militants on Thursday, killing all 295 people aboard, a Ukrainian interior ministry official was quoted as saying by Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

    According to reports, various airlines are now avoiding eastern Ukraine airspace. Meanwhile, Ukraine separatist group blames Ukraine Air Force for the incident. The US has said that they don’t have their own confirmation about the incident.



    I’m shocked and saddened by the Malaysian air disaster. Officials from across Whitehall are meeting to establish the facts.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent ‘deep condolences’ to the Malaysian prime minister.

    The aircraft, which other sources said was a Boeing 777 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, came down near the city of Donetsk, stronghold of pro-Russian rebels, Anton Gerashchenko said, adding that it was hit by a ground-to-air missile.
    There was no further confirmation of the report, although Ukrainian officials said local residents had found wreckage.

    Malaysia Airlines said on its Twitter feed it had lost contact with its flight MH-17 from Amsterdam. “The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace,” it said.
