2 Ukrainian military fighter jets shot down

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Just 20 miles from the site of the Malaysia Airlines plane wreckage, pro-Russia rebels have shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets today.

The separatists say one of the pilots was killed, and another is being sought by rebel fighters.

The insurgents deny having missiles that could hit a jetliner at cruising altitude, but they say they do have ground-to-air missiles that could hit targets as high as 11,500 feet.
