The Wall Street Journal is reporting that US intelligence says a surface-to-air missile was fired at MH17, but the paper says intelligence agencies are divided on whether the missile was fired from Russia or Eastern Ukraine.

US intelligence said the plane was shot down, according to news reports from NBC News and CNN.
