Australia is marking a national day of mourning for those who died on Malaysian Airlines Flight 17. The flight was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17. A national memorial service took place at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Melbourne Thursday to honor those who died, and to support their loved ones. Australia's prime minister says the nation is grieving for all 298 people on board, and, in particular, the 38 who called Australia home. In addition to the service, flags on all government buildings in Australia and overseas are flying at half-staff.
