(Newser) – An Australian woman is mourning the loss of loved ones on a Malaysia Airlines flight for the second time this year. Kaylene Mann lost a brother and sister-in-law in the disappearance of Flight 370 in March. Now she's learned that her stepdaughter was aboard the plane that got shot down over Ukraine yesterday, reports the Times of New Zealand and Australia. Stepdaughter Maree Rizk and her husband, Albert, were returning home to Melbourne after a month-long holiday in Europe. "It's just brought everyone, everything back," Mann's brother tells AP. "It's just ... ripped our guts again."
