US President Barack Obama has said a surface-to-air missile fired from a rebel-held area in east Ukraine brought down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The plane crashed on Thursday, killing all 298 people on board. Mr Obama called the attack "an outrage of unspeakable proportions", saying he would ensure "the truth is out". The US and Russia clashed at the UN Security Council, with Russia's envoy putting the blame on Ukraine for its army's attacks on eastern areas. The rebels have accused the Ukrainian government of downing the airliner. However, Ukraine called the disaster an "act of terrorism".
