Flight MH17 was "no coincidence"

Far too much coincidence for the two situations to not be linked in some way

Relatives of missing MH370 passengers said the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet in Ukraine was no coincidence.

A Boeing 777-200 went down in eastern Ukraine on Thursday carrying 298 passengers and crew, made up mostly of Dutch citizens.

Relatives of the missing plane's passengers, which went missing in March, have repeatedly accused the airline and Malaysian government of withholding information.

They have also accused them of suspicious conduct in handling investigations into the disaster.

Sarah Bajc is a partner of American passenger Philip Wood. She said "it was only a matter of time" that a new tragedy hit the struggling flag carrier because "when symptoms of a disease are ignored, the disease festers".

US officials said MH17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile, a possible casualty of a violent rebellion by pro-Russian insurgents.

"Another (Malaysia Airlines) flight has gone down. Another 777... ," Bajc said in an email to AFP.

"How do we know a similar thing didn't happen to MH370?" she said.

Flight MH370 vanished March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard , about two-thirds of them Chinese citizens.

The Boeing 777-400 is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, but an extensive search has turned up no sign of wreckage so far, leaving frustrated and anguished families alleging a cover-up.
