CNN--President Barack Obama said Friday that the Malaysia Airlines plane that crashed in Ukraine was shot down in an "outrage of unspeakable proportion." He identified one American who died in the crash as Quinn Lucas Schansman.

He also said that pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine have received a "steady flow" of arms and training from Russia, including anti-aircraft weapons. He called for a "credible international investigation" into the shooting down of the plane.

The President called for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine between the Kiev government and pro-Russian rebels in eastern regions so that an international investigation can proceed with no tampering of evidence.
