ISRAEL: American air carriers suspended flights from the United Stated to Israel "for a period of up to 24 hours" after the FAA issued a warning in response to a rocket strike near Tel Aviv's main airport, officials said. As the conflict entered its third week and the death toll on both sides climbed, the U.S. pressed Hamas to accept an Egyptian cease-fire proposal. But militants in the Palestinian territory showed no sign of letting up on rocket fire.

UKRAINE:  The U.S. government believes that pro-Russian separatists most likely shot down a Malaysia Airlines jet "by mistake," not realizing it was a civilian passenger flight, U.S. intelligence officials said on Tuesday. Russia has shown no sign of backing off its shipments of arms to separatists in Ukraine despite these allegations.

The Purge: Anarchy places with 28.4 million; thats' less than the original did...but with better reviews and word-of-mouth than the original, this one still might make more by the end of its run.  Planes: Fire & Rescue shows with 18 million; this one also opened to less than its predecessor, but the budget was controlled enough that the kids' merch will more than compensate. Sex Tape took the fourt slot with 15 million dollars, underperforming already low expectations.

UKRAINE: A Malaysia Airlines passenger jet crashed in a rebel-controlled part of eastern Ukraine on Thursday, spurring swift accusations from Ukrainian officials that "terrorists" shot down the aircraft. The United States has concluded a missile shot down the plane. The Obama administration does not think Ukraine has air defenses in the area of the incident, and did not have the capability, let alone the motivation, to shoot down the plane. Over the last couple of months, pro-Russian separatists have been downing Ukrainian military planes. The Ukrainian government also said on Thursday that a Russian military plane had shot down a Ukrainian fighter jet in Ukrainian airspace the previous evening.
