(Undated) -- There are no easy answers to the questions about what led to today's crash of a Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine. Malaysia Airlines is only confirming that it has lost contact with Flight MH-17. The flight was carrying 295 people when it went down not far from the Russian border. The White House says President Obama is aware of the situation and Malaysia's prime minister says he's "shocked by the news." Ukrainian officials are suggesting the Boeing 777 was shot down by a surface to air missile fired by separatists.
