First Pictures Of Passengers Who Perished On Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17

Yesterday Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over territory held by Pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine. 298 victims were said to have perished in the airline that was headed from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Today identities of the passengers - all of whom are thought to have died - have begun to emerge.
 The victims include nine Britons, 173 Dutch and 27 Australians. Among the dead also included three Australian children, aged between eight and 12, who were travelling with their grandfather. The tragedy has sparked outrage across the globe, with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk leading calls on world powers to support his government in bringing to justice 'those b****** who committed this international crime' after a passenger plane was shot down over his country.

This is so sad, Putin really needs to be sanctioned for this. This is so terrible. What is Obama doing about this?
