BREAKING: Malaysian Airplane Crashes In Ukraine With 295 People Aboard

UPDATE 1:40 PM EST: Reuters reports 23 U.S. citizens are among the 300+ people killed after a Malaysia Airlines flight was reportedly shot down in Ukraine near the Russian border.

The Boeing 777 came down near the city of Donetsk, stronghold of pro-Russian rebels, interior ministry official Anton Gerashchenko said on Facebook, adding it was “shot down with a Buk anti-aircraft system by terrorists” – the term the Kiev government uses for militants seeking to unite eastern Ukraine with Russia.
