Investigators are making their way to eastern Ukraine where a Malaysia Airlines plane crashed this morning. The passenger jet had 295 people on board. It went down near the Russian border.

Malaysia Airlines flight 17 was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and was believed to be flying at about 33-thousand feet when airline officials says they lost contact with the Boeing triple- 7.

The cause is still unclear but experts say since the debris is reportedly scattered over a 10 mile area they suspect this may have been caused by a bomb or missile
