Cease fire urged in wake of Malaysian plane crash

From around the globe come calls from lead­ers seek­ing an imme­di­ate cease-fire in east­ern Ukraine. Many are also look­ing for quick access for inter­na­tional inves­ti­ga­tors to the crash site of the Malaysia Air­lines jet­liner shot down over the country’s bat­tle­fields. The strong words came amid the con­trast­ing images of emer­gency work­ers and off-duty coal min­ers fan­ning out across pic­turesque sun­flower fields search­ing for charred pieces of wreck­age from the Boe­ing 777.
