The Federal Aviation Administration urged US-registered planes Thursday to avoid flying over eastern Ukraine, following the apparent shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over the rebel-held region.

The FAA issued the notice "due to recent events and the potential for continued hazardous activities," with restricted areas including the entire Simferopol and Dnepropetrovsk flight information regions.
