That was caused by the impact of a missile that likely caused many to be much less than intact long before impact with this planet!
We should be able to expect better from our media, but I've long given up hope of that!
The Missile is likely to have caused minimal direct harm to many of the pax.
Flight 902, USSR shooting down of a Sth Korean Airlines B707, two pax died from the missile impact, and the cabin depressurised slowly, the plane crashed landed and all the rest survived. Plane and C&VDR refused to be handed over. Plane was shot down prior to leaving Russian Airspace and the fighter pilot knew it was a civilian Asian plane.
Flight 007, USSR shooting down of a Sth Korean Airlines B747, plane was still flying 14min after being fired upon. The plane depressurised slowly No indication from the crew of injuries. Pilots eventually lost control and it crashed with all lost. Shot down prior to leaving Russian Airspace. Russians refused access into their waters by the search team and originally denied any involvement and later about giving warning shots, communicating with the plane and even the circumstances and wasn't for nearly 10yrs before handing over the CVR and CDR and even in two different intervals. Even more interesting there is a photo in wiki of Putin giving the fighter pilot an award in 2000 for a separate reason. The pilot even made a comment in a later intervene how much effort he had to go to shoot the plane as its speed was too slow for him to maintain cruise. The fighter pilot knew it was a civilian plane.
They said the missile that hit MH17 is a type that pre-explodes prior impact to enable the plane to be covered in shrapnel (I assume more likely to have success than above two weapons).
What appears to be common in all three scenarios is the common level interference, lack of support and denial and probably in the end that fact they knew it was a civilian plane which in todays world the equipment required to identify is almost local electrical shop stuff and when all else fails, WWW.
