The world is still in shock over the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines aircraft, Flight MH17, which crashed in East Ukraine near the Russian border yesterday after reportedly being shot down by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile. 

No one has claimed responsibility for shooting down the plane. However, Ukrainian authorities have blamed pro-Russian rebels for the incident, calling it “an act of terrorism ,” Daily Mail reports.

All 298 passengers on board were killed. And now, photos and names of some of the passengers have been released.

The children in the photo above, are: Mo Maslin, 12, (left), his brother Otis, eight, (centre) and sister Evie Maslin, 10, (right) were killed on the flight along with their grandfather, Nick Morris.

The situation is truly heartbreaking.

    Indeed this is heartbreaking. How safe are we at all. People just make weapons of mass destructions to kill innocent souls over power struggle. I want to see all these losers take the world with them when the DIE. God have mercy. May their souls rest in eternal peace. This is very sad and I pray to Jehovah God Almighty that it never happens again. And that those responsible will never know peace in Jesus’ name.

    This is so sad. Evil abound everywhere. Two people fight, yet the innocent suffer. Do these people deserve to die in a war that clearly doesn’t have anything to do with them?

    May their souls rest in peace.

      Innocents have been dying in this conflict from Day One (beginning from the EU-encouraged so-called “popular uprising” against an elected president). Unfortunately, it just expanded to include Western innocents. May their souls rest in peace!

    I saw the picture of the boy in the middle. He was still strapped in his seat and he landed on the ground with his face which was shattered. That picture broke my heart into smithereens. There was also a whole family,mother,father and their four children on board. May their souls find rest in God’s bossing.

    I hope that those that are responsible are captured and punished. This is horrible.

      My fear is that the international politics involved won’t allow justice to be properly served on behalf of the deceased and their grieving families. Russia needs to corporate fully with the countries who’s citizens were on that flight and give up the separatist group that fired the missile. However, with all the political egos on the table, I can see this ending with all 298 being written in history books as simply unfortunate casualties of war.

      If that happens, then my sincere hope is for their killers to be haunted by all of this innocent blood, may it stain all of their sleeping and waking moments. May those who pulled the trigger and those who facilitated such evil (whether Russian or Ukrainian) never rest in peace for as long as they refuse to make restitution to the entire 298 lives they took.

      The “facilitation” of this evil started in the West, and not in Russia or Ukraine. May the soul of ALL innocents (including those defencless civilians currently being slaughtered in Gaza with western weaponry) rest in peace.

    Oh Father, this is truly heartbreaking. Look at these people on the way to KL, it was not a plane mishap, it was a misguided missile that they had nothing to do with…Lord please comfort all families of the deceased.

    The West have succeeded in brain washing the enemies of Islam with their lies. Is it not the same weapons of mass destruction that saddam was accused of is been used against innocent citizens? Time shall tell.
