MH17 plane crash: Crash is Russia's 'defining moment' says PM

Prime Minister David Cameron has said the Malaysian Airlines crash in east Ukraine is a "defining moment" for Russia.

Some 298 people died after the airline went down in eastern Ukraine last week.

Pro-Russia separatists have been blamed for downing the jet - reportedly with a missile.

Mr Cameron told MPs it was unlikely the plane had been shot down deliberately - but warned of "hard-hitting" sanctions if Moscow did not change course.
