    WASHINGTON, July 24 (RIA Novosti) - The United States may unveil to the public additional intelligence data on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told journalists.

    The intelligence community is in the process of unveiling more information, Earnest said.

    The United States presented on Tuesday the information it had to support its claims that the Malaysia Airlines Flight Boeing-777 crash, which killed 298 people last week, was a result of a shoot down by independence supporters in the region.

    The US officials said they were not sure who was behind the crash, saying the independence supporters could have downed the airliner "by mistake." The officials said they relied in their conclusions partly on social media information and video recordings distributed by Ukrainian authorities.

    Ukrainian government and militia have been trading blame for the alleged downing of the airliner ever since reports suggested foul play, with independence supporters saying they have no required technology to shoot a target at the given altitude.
