VIDEO: Aftermath of Malaysian Airlines Jet Shot Down By Missile Near Ukraine-Russia Border

An adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister says a Malaysian passenger plane carrying 295 people has been shot down over a town in the east of the country.

Anton Gerashenko says on his Facebook page the Boeing 777 plane was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters (33,000 feet) when it was hit Thursday by a missile fired from a Buk launcher.

Malaysia Airlines posted on Twitter that it lost contact with the MH17 flight from Amsterdam.
