Tragic history has been written for Australia today. The Ukraine plane crash is the second-worst terrorist attack in our history, and the third-worst plane crash, in terms of casualties.
The Ukraine plane crash is the second-worst terrorist attack ever to strike Australians in terms of casualties, surpassed only by the Bali bombings.
The Malaysia Airlines passenger jet was shot down by a missile over Ukraine overnight, killing 298 people. Pro-Russian rebels are believed to be responsible. The Australian government has confirmed 27 Australians died, and said that number may rise.
