BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — An Indiana University student from the Netherlands was on board the Malaysian airliner shot down Thursday in eastern Ukraine, university officials said Friday, according to USA Today.

Karlijn Keijzer, 25, of Amsterdam was a doctoral student in chemistry at the university about 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis who also earned her master's degree from Indiana University, spokesman Mark Land said.

Her hometown was Almelo, Netherlands, about 90 miles east of Amsterdam and 30 miles from the German border, according to her Facebook page. In Bloomington, she was a member of the women's rowing team during the 2011 season.
