A Malaysian airliner carrying 295 people has crashed in east Ukraine on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, amid allegations it was shot down.
Both the Ukrainian government and rebels have denied shooting it down in the region close to the Russian border.
Pro-Russian separatists are believed to have shot down two Ukrainian military planes over the region in recent days.
There is no official closure of Ukraine airspace but Germany’s Lufthansa, Air France and Turkish Airlines are all now avoiding eastern Ukraine.
