Ukraine Says Russian Officers Involved In Malaysian Jet Crash
(Kiev) -- A Ukrainian official says two Russian military intelligence officers are involved in the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner. Ukraine's state security chief bases his claims on an intercepted phone conversation between two Russian officers and pro-Russian separatists. During the recorded conversation one pro-Russian fighter says there's a "sea of women and children" in the wreckage. One of the rebels tells a comrade that a group of fighters had shot the airliner down.

The Ukrainian security chief played another conversation in which a rebel fighter asked what the passenger jet was doing over Ukraine? Another voice replies, quote, "That means they've called up spies. No way to flights. This is war."
