After the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down in Ukraine about 50 kilometres from Russian airspace, Twitter has been flooded with condolences for the 295 lives of the people who died in the brutal accident that included three infants and 15 crew members. Tweeples are not only showing their anger towards the heinous act but also tweeting about how innocent people have had to sacrifice their lives for the age old war between nations.

Although various terror groups have been pinpointed for shooting down the Malaysian passenger aircraft, no credible information has been revealed so far. Here are some Twiteratti offering condolences to the families of the dead, and some other Tweeples who are putting up angry tweets.
