Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 shot down, crashes in Ukraine: minister

Recommended Posts

GRABOVO, Ukraine - Ukraines security services have produced what they say are two intercepted telephone conversations that they claim shows rebels are responsible for downing a Malaysian passenger plane carrying 295 people.

 

In the first call, security services say rebel commander Igor Bezler tells a Russian military intelligence officer that rebel forces shot down a plane. In the second, two rebel fighters one of them at the scene of the crash say the rocket attack was carried out by a unit of insurgents about 25 kilometres north of the crash site. Neither recording has been independently verified.

 

One of the fighters, who states he is at the site of where the plane came to the ground, describes seeing scattered debris, and later describes finding the documents of somebody he identifies as an Indonesian national studying at Thompson University.

 

A Ukrainian official said Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down Thursday over a town in the east of the country, though Malaysias defence minister hasnt yet confirmed it was an attack.

 

Canadas department of foreign affairs said officials were working to determine if any Canadians are among the victims Thursday afternoon.

In a nutshell all fingers point at Russia. Looks like they got a lot of explaining to do.

I think this is more of a sensationalist story. Because it's mere coincidence. If some kid did this and the plane DIDN'T crash, it won't make the news. The only reason why it made the news was because the plane crashed and the kid predicted it. Maybe he's usually this paranoid anyways? You really never know.

That's a possibility.

 

Anyway, the Russian side of things is allegedly poor training communication/training led to the rebels "accidentally" shooting down the plane.
