Malaysia Airlines Passenger Jet Shot Down

A Malaysia Airlines passenger jet carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew was shot down over the Ukraine, Fox News reports. The Boeing 777 was shot down at cruising altitude (above 30,000 feet) over the Ukraine. All 295 souls on board are dead. This is the 2nd tragedy to strike Malaysia Airlines since March, when one of its jets disappeared over the South Indian Ocean.

The MH17 Boeing 777 wide body jet was en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam when it was shot down. "The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace. More details to follow,” read a tweet from Malaysia Airlines’ Twitter account.

American planes are banned from flying over that region because of the risk of planes being shot out of the sky.

Boston Bomber Suspect was Unarmed

According to the Huffington Post, two U.S. officials confirmed to the Associated Press that 19-year-old Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was unarmed when he was found hiding in a boat on Friday, April 19. No gun was found in the boat, according to the AP.

This contradicts the blatant lies told by Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, who said his officers and SWAT team members "exchanged gunfire" with the suspect. Davis' exact words were:

“Over the course of the next hour or so we exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was inside the boat, and ultimately the hostage rescue team of the F.B.I. made an entry into the boat and removed the suspect, who was still alive."

He was wrong on both counts; there was no gunfire exchanged and the FBI did not enter the boat or remove the suspect.

A photo taken by a CBS cameraman during the standoff clearly shows Tsarnaev exiting the boat under his own power.
