SEPANG 18 July 2014: Former psychology student from International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), Mohd Ali Mohd Salim, 30, was among those killed in last night’s Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash in Ukraine.

Father of the deceased, Mohd Salim Sarmon said he could not believe the news of the tragedy when he was informed by his daughters.

“My son, Mohd Ali, studied in Amsterdam. He’s a Ph.D. student there. He was coming home for Hari Raya,” Mr. Mohd Salim was quoted by the Wall Street Journal as saying.

There were 283 passengers and 15 crew members on board, when it was apparently shot down and crashed while crossing above a conflict zone in eastern Ukraine.
