Key Points
A Malaysian airliner has crashed in Ukraine, near Russian border

Malaysia Airlines says it contact was lost with Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur at 1415 GMT

There were 280 passengers and 15 crew members on board
There are reports of bodies and burning wreckage on the ground

The Ukrainian military and pro-Russian rebels have accused each other of shooting down the plane; both sides say they were not responsible

Several airlines, including Lufthansa and Air France, say they will now avoid eastern Ukrainian airspace

Source

It looks like the plane was shot down by anti-air Buk missiles and most of the people think it was the Ukrainian military that took down the plane. Russia strongly denied any implications in this incident.

Here's where the event happened:

Everything is going wrong.
We make more than we can use.
What is the only way for government to "use" what we don't want?
What is the only way to keep the market on?
What is the only way to avoid protest?
WAR!

Seems like it was accidently shot by separatists who mistaked it for a Ukraine Military transport aircraft which was clear by the released tapes.

Others are around 1 Duel Citizenship Dutch-American, 1 New Zealand (recently confirmed) 1 Hong Kong resident w/ a passenger with unconfirmed nationality.

I'm guessing more who are yet unconfirmed. Russia have really screwed up with their endorsed separatists rebels.

When flight 93 crashed there was nothing left but a giant hole. In this case there is tons of debris and bodies. Weird

Well, shot down actually. The title is inaccurate.

Clearly the fuel didn't explode until it hit the ground, indicating the missile didn't hit the right spot of the plain meaning it just spread our across the ground with the main part blowing up w/ the fuel tanks upon impact.
