Malaysia Airlines jet shot down in Ukraine: "Wounds opened up again," MH370 partner says

On Tuesday, a Malaysia Airlines 777 with 298 people on board crashed in eastern Ukraine.

U.S. officials confirm the plane was shot down out of the sky, but so far, officials can't say who was responsible for the tragedy.

The truly eerie coincidence: this was a Malaysia Airlines plane.

U.S. official: Missile shot down Malaysia Airlines plane

Just four months ago, another Malaysian airlines jet, Flight 370, went missing - and 133 days later, there is still no sign of the missing plane or any indication of why it vanished.

As families in Malaysia and around the world learn the fate of their loved one, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak called for an international team to have full access to the crash site.

"We must and we will find out precisely what happened to this flight," he said." "No stone will be left unturned," he said.

In her first interview on the crash of MH17, Sarah Bajc, who lost her partner on flight MH370, speaks about how she felt when she first heard the news about the downed passenger jet.
