KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — An adviser to Ukraine's interior minister says a Malaysian passenger plane carrying 295 people has been shot down over a town in the east of the country.

He says the plane was flying at an altitude of 33,000 feet when it was hit by a missile from a type of launcher that was seen by journalists yesterday near a town in eastern Ukraine.

Malaysia Airlines says it lost contact with the plane as it was in Ukrainian airspace.
