WHO says spokesman, AIDS expert died in Malaysia Airlines flight 17 crash
An update in the Malaysia Airlines flight that crashed over Ukraine yesterday…
The World Health Organization says it lost its spokesman when flight MH17 went down, as well as influential AIDS expert Joep Lange.Both men were on their way to the 20th annual AIDS Conference in Australia.
Meanwhile, investigators continue to work to determine who was responsible for shooting down the Boeing 777 with a missile.
Both Ukraine and Russia are blaming each other for the incident.
Earlier this week, pro-Russian separatists fighting Ukraine’s military shot down two military aircraft, but they say they don’t have the firepower to take down a civilian plane.
However, Ukraine says its security service intercepted telephone conversations in which rebel leaders admit to taking down the airliner.
