The tragic outlook for numbers of casualities rose sharply as authorities estimated 200,000 dead in the quake-ravaged heart of Haiti. As doctors were pleading for help and scattered looting erupted, the world pledged more money, food, medicine and police. Some 2,000 U.S. Marines steamed into nearby waters. And ex-president Bill Clinton, special U.N. envoy, flew in to offer support. Six days after the earthquake struck, search teams still pulled buried survivors from the ruins. But hour by hour the unmet needs of hundreds of thousands grew. Overwhelmed surgeons appealed for anesthetics, scalpels, saws for cutting off crushed limbs.

Mainstream Ukrainian media immediately picked up the allegation and spread it as straight news. "The Russian mercenaries are openly looting the crash site of the Malaysian Boeing: … [Read more...] about Flight MH17 victims’ bodies were looted. Or maybe not.
