Alleged images of Flight MH17 crash site emerge on social media

With details of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17’s crash in Ukraine leaking out, and confirmation on what led to the incident hard to come by, alleged images of the tragic plane crash have begun to appear on social media networks. 

Michael Holmes of CNN shared an image on Twitter via his account @holmescnn of a section of what appears to be a Malaysia Airlines jetliner on a grassy field. The Malaysian flag is clearly depicted and the red and blue livery colours used by MAS are also shown. 

The source of the images, a man identifying himself as a tourist guide / traveller / photographer / former soldier from Slovenia, @MatevzNovak, has since posted more photos – taken by a Nadezhda Chernetskaya – of what he claims to be the crash site of Flight MH17 in Grabovo, Ukraine.
