The plane, which was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed near the border between Ukraine and Russia on Thursday. U.S. officials have said that the plane was shot down, and all 298 people aboard died.

The crash comes just months after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370. One hundred eighty-nine passengers aboard the plane that crashed Thursday were reportedly Dutch.
