U.S. threatens additional sanctions following Malaysia Airlines crash

|By:, SA News Editor

President Obama has again warned Vladimir Putin of increased sanctions if Russia does not change its stance of backing Ukrainian rebels.

The additional threat follows the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over the battle-torn east Ukraine region of Donetsk.

U.S. intelligence agencies say the plane was struck by a ground-to-air missile but are divided to if it was launched by the Russian military or by pro-Russian separatists.
