Flight MH17 shot down "by mistake", US intelligence indicates

Pro-Russia rebels probably shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, US intelligence officials said on Tuesday, but they were likely ‘ill-trained’ and did not know what they were shooting at.

Evidence gathered so far suggests separatists launched the SA-11 surface-to-air missile that blew up the Malaysian airliner on July 17, but it remains unclear “who pulled the trigger” and why, said a senior intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“The most plausible explanation... was that it was a mistake,” and that the missile was fired by “an ill-trained crew” using a system that requires some skill and training, the official said.
