Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down on Thursday over eastern Ukraine with 298 people on board — nearly 200 of them were Dutch. There are no known survivors.
U.S. officials believe the plane was downed by a missile fired by pro-Russian separatists. It may have been mistaken for a Ukrainian air force cargo plane.
World leaders are demanding an immediate investigation.
