KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Malaysia Airlines has increased the death toll from Flight 17 that was shot down over war-torn eastern Ukraine on Thursday to 298 from 295, saying that three infants had not been included in the original list.

The airline also said in a statement Friday on its website that all of its European flights "will be taking alternative routes avoiding the usual route."

Of the known nationalities of the victims, the majority - 154 - were from the Netherlands, while 43, including 15 crew, were from Malaysia.

It said that the nationalities of 41 passengers had not been verified yet.
