Amateur video shows fiery MH17 wreckage moments after crash

As the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 recovery operation finally gets underway in eastern Ukraine, amateur footage has emerged of the smoldering crash site minutes after the plane went down. The Associated Press posted the two-minute-long video online Sunday.

MH17 was shot down over Ukraine four months ago, but the recovery effort has repeatedly been hamstrung by fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists.
