Unavoidable fate of MH17 passengers (Photos)


All 298 passengers on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 died after the plane exploded high over eastern Ukraine on Thursday.

U.S. officials believe the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile from an area inside Ukraine controlled by Russian-backed separatists.

McRobbie said in a statement. “Karlijn was an outstanding student and a talented athlete, and her passing is a loss to the campus and the university. Our hearts also go out to the families of all the victims of this senseless act.”
