Biden: MH17 'blown out of the sky'

MH17 was "apparently" shot down, Vice President Joe Biden said at the beginning of remarks at the Netroots Nation conference. The plane was "shot down, not an accident, blown out of the sky," Biden said.

He also said US officials will be assisting with the crash investigation.
