    Kiev (AFP) - A Malaysian airliner flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur has crashed in east Ukraine, where pro-Russian rebels are battling government forces, Russian and Ukrainian news agencies reported, citing aviation and security sources.


    The Boeing passenger liner came down close to town of Shaktarsk in the rebellion-wracked region of Donetsk after disappearing from the radar and teams from the emergency services were trying to reach the scene, an unnamed security source told Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

    “A Boeing Malaysian Airlines that was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur began to descend about 50km before entering Russian airspace, and was subsequently found burning on the ground in Ukraine,” an aviation source told the news agency.


    The plane appeared to have come down in a region of military action where Ukrainian government forces are battling pro-Russian separatists.


    A separate unnamed source in the Ukrainian security apparatus, quoted by Interfax, said the plane disappeared from radar at a height of 10,000 metres after which it came down near the town of Shakhtyorsk.

    Drudge has links to several sources that say the plane was shot down.
    Possible that it crossed at precisely the wrong spot, between the 2 battling forces, and was mis-identified.

    Sadly, 2 of the articles I read fear that all 295 souls on board are lost.

    Can't wait to see how the Russians try to explain this one away.

    Never fly fully loaded passenger jet over civil war.

    This was a heavy duty AA missile not a shoulder fired one, its kind of hard to mistakenly shoot down a civilian plane
