U.S. Official: “Malaysia Airlines Flight Was Shot Down.”
News has been cluttered all day as details of a deadly attack on Malyasia Airlines 17. Sources say the Malaysia flight was shot down in a controlled area of Eastern Ukraine earlier today. The plane was carrying 298 passengers and they were no survivors found after the attack. While we have come to the conclusion that the plane was shot down, there is still no details as to who shot it down.
A radar system tracked a surface-to-air missile turn on and track a plane moments before it went down. The United States is analyzing the trajectory of the missile to determine where it was shot from.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the plane never made a distress call. He ordered that an international team have full access to the crash site.”We must and we will find out precisely what happened to this flight. No stone will be left unturned,” he said.”If it transpires that the plane was indeed shot down, we insist that the perpetrators must swiftly be brought to justice,” Najib said.
“People said the plane kind of exploded in the air, and that everything rained down in bits and pieces, the plane itself, the people inside,” said Noah Sneider, an American freelance journalist who interviewed witnesses at the scene.
As details continue pouring in, you will be notified. Hopefully justice will served and the attackers will be punished for their actions.
