UNITED NATIONS (AP) – Britain says the U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting Friday morning on Ukraine.
Britain’s U.N. Mission said Thursday it requested the meeting and later tweeted that it is set for 10 a.m. Friday.
The request follows Wednesday’s downing of a Ukrainian air force fighter and Thursday’s downing of a Malaysia Airlines passenger plane carrying 295 people over eastern Ukraine.
Ukraine’s U.N. Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev tweeted after Thursday’s crash in a rebel-controlled area that “Ukraine will present the evidence of Russian military involvement into the Boeing crash. This crime should be fully investigated.”
