A Malaysian passenger airliner has reportedly been ‘shot down’ over Ukraine near the border with Russia, with all the 295 people on board dead.
The Boeing plane was en route from the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, to Kuala Lumpur on Thursday when it crashed at an altitude of 10 kilometers above eastern Ukraine.
Itar-Tass news agency said the airline was downed by a “ground-to-air missile.”
A Russian aviation industry source said the plane did not enter Russia’s airspace on schedule.
