Malaysian Airlines Passenger Plane Carrying 295 People Shot Down Over Ukraine [PHOTOS]

A Malaysian Airlines passenger plane has been shot down on the Russian-Ukraine border, killing all 295 people on board.

The Boeing 777 aircraft was hit by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile over territory held by pro-Russian rebels who the Ukrainian government says are backed by the Kremlin.

The Ukrainian authorities laid the blame for the attack on the rebels by denying any responsibility for the missile launch.

TV pictures from the scene showed a pall of smoke billowing into the sky near Donetsk, apparently from the stricken flight MH17.

Witnesses say body parts are scattered over a distance of 15km, suggesting the plane broke up in mid-air.
