Malaysia jet crashes in east Ukraine conflict zone

A Malaysian airliner carrying 295 people has crashed in east Ukraine on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, amid allegations it was shot down.

There are no signs of survivors at the scene of the crash near the village of Grabovo, which is under the control of separatist rebels.

There are reports of a missile strike, but a flight at 33,000 feet requires sophisticated weaponry well beyond the kill force of a shoulder fired rocket.

The Ukrainians are claiming that Pro-Russia rebels did it. We’ll see.
