Malaysia Airlines MH17 crashes in Ukraine

A Malaysia Airlines passenger plane crashes in Ukraine, near Russian border, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard, mostly Dutch. It’s widely believed that the plane was shot down by pro-Russian separatist.

My condolences to the families and relatives. Like many people around the world, I’m shocked and saddened by the news. Can’t comprehend the reason behind the attack, and can’t understand how it was deemed safe to fly over the region.

This is the second disaster involving Malaysia Airlines this year. The flight MH370, which gone missing in March, has yet to be found.
