First Photos of Passengers Including 80 Children That Died In Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Crash

Posted in: , , ,

Among the 298 dead in the Malaysian Airlines MH17 crash yesterday were 80 children, including three Australian children, (pictured left), Mo Maslin, 12, (left), his brother Otis, eight, (centre) and sister Evie Maslin, 10, (right) who were traveling with their grandfather Nick Morris.

According to Australian newspapers, the family had been on holiday and the children’s parents had remained in Amsterdam for a few extra days while Mr Norris took his grandchildren on MH17 to get them back to Australia in time for school. The plane was going from Kuala Lumpur to Australia.

More than 100 AIDS researchers who were heading to an international conference in Australia were also on board the plane. 

The US is yet to confirm the number of Americans on the flight, they will usually wait till all the affected family have been informed.

There were 173 passengers from the Netherlands, 27 from Australia, 44 from Malaysia, 12 from Indonesia, 9 from the UK, 4 from Belgium, 4 from Germany, 3 from Philippines, 1 from Canada and from New Zealand.

This is just so heart-breaking. These people are victims, not of a faulty plane, but of human violence and war. Such an unneccessary loss of lives.
