AIDS research world in mourning

SYDNEY (AP) - Officials say several world-renowned AIDS researchers and activists heading to an international AIDS conference in Australia were on board the Malaysian jetliner that officials suspect was shot down over Ukraine as it flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Thursday.

One of those was the former president of the International AIDS Society, Joep Lange, a well-known HIV researcher from the Netherlands.

Also among the dead is Glenn Thomas, the World Health Organization's Geneva-based spokesman.
