    Satellites have captured images of the scattered debris and charred wreckage from last week's crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine that killed all 298 people on board. DigitalGlobe, a Colorado-based company, programmed three of the five Earth-watching satellites in its commercial fleet to look at the crash site shortly after the plane was shot down by a missile on Thursday, July 17. DigitalGlobe was finally able to capture clear, high-resolution images of the crash site yesterday (July 20) and today (July 21). In the top half of the image, the main debris field can be seen inside a blackened splotch of earth near the village of Hrabove in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, which has been embroiled in conflict as Ukrainian forces and Russian-backed separatists fight for control of the region.

  • Islamic State crushes and coerces on march towards Baghdad

    By Maggie Fick and Isra' al-Rubei'i BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Using its own version of "soft" and "hard" power, the Islamic State is crushing resistance across northern Iraq so successfully that its promise to march on Baghdad may no longer be unrealistic bravado. The Islamic State, which in June captured a vast stretch of territory in the north including the largest city Mosul, used this strategy when its fighters met armed resistance from the town of al-Alam for 13 days running. Weeks later, only a few masked gunmen guard checkpoints surrounding al-Alam at night, so comfortable is the Islamic State in its control through fear. "One hundred percent of people are angry that the Islamic State is here but there is nothing we can do," said a scared resident who spoke by telephone on condition of anonymity.

  • U.S. to release intelligence on Malaysian plane downing: State Department

    The United States will on Tuesday release intelligence backing its assertion that the Malaysian airliner that crashed in Ukraine was brought down by a missile fired from the separatist-controlled area, the State Department said. Spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters the intelligence community would later in the day "be further declassifying information and will be putting out additional information that supports what we have said." Harf repeated the U.S. belief that the plane, with nearly 300 people on board, was shot down by a Russian-made SA-11 ground-to-air missile fired from an area controlled by separatists close to the Russian border in eastern Ukraine.
