(NEWSER) – One American was among the 298 people killed in yesterday's Malaysia Airlines crash, President Obama revealed today. The passenger was identified as Quinn Lucas Schansman, though few details about him were immediately available. The US ambassador to the UN said today that the latest US intelligence suggests the plane got hit by a surface-to-air missile fired from territory controlled by pro-Russian separatists, and Obama noted that those separatists have received a "steady flow" of weapons and training from Moscow, reports CNN. Obama also called for an immediate ceasefire (as Vladimir Putin did earlier) and a "credible international investigation."
