There is currently a lot of semi-confirmed news and information related to MH17, mostly in terms of pinning blame for the launch of the missile. There are also attempts to obtain information about the passengers on board.
This is very recent breaking news with constantly developing information - and with that the high occurrence of inaccurate or misleading information being passed along as facts.
Speaking for myself (I have not yet heard from Amirul) I am deeply heartbroken about this news. This has been a really rotten time for Malaysia Airlines and as a frequent flyer of their services (including having been on this flight in the past) my heart goes out to the families of those affected.
I am not sure if we will expand WhereIsMH370 to cover news around MH17. Let us know if you think this would be useful.
