The total number of dead in the crash of a Malaysia Airlines plane in eastern Ukraine near the Russian border Thursday is more than 300 and includes 23 U.S. citizens, a Ukrainian interior ministry aide said.

"More than 300 innocent people have been killed ... it is known that 23 U.S. citizens were killed," Zoryan Shkyryak was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said on Friday he was shocked by reports a Malaysia Airlines plane had gone down over Ukraine and he was launching an investigation.

"I am shocked by reports than an MH plane crashed. We are launching an immediate investigation," Najib said on his Twitter feed. MH is the code for Malaysia Airlines.

Raising the stakes in the East-West showdown between Kiev and Moscow, a Ukrainian interior ministry official blamed "terrorists" using a ground-to-air missile and Ukraine's prime minister called the downing of the flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur a "catastrophe".

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko believes a "terrorist act" was the cause of a Malaysian airlines passenger plane crashing on Thursday, his press secretary said.
"Poroshenko thinks this of the plane that was brought down: it is not an incident, not a catastrophe, but a terrorist act," Svatoslav Tsegolko said.

A Reuters correspondent saw burning wreckage and bodies on the ground at the village of Grabovo, about 25 miles from the Russian border in an area where pro-Russian rebels have been active and have claimed to have shot down other aircraft.
