Iranian Missile Likely Downed Ukrainian Plane, Western Leaders Say
“We recognize that this may have been done accidentally,” the Canadian leader, Justin Trudeau said at a news conference in Ottawa.
On the other hand, Ukraine has sought unconditional help from the United Nations to probe the accident. However, Iran has ruled out a missile attack on Ukrainian airliner and asked Canada to share an intelligence report. Also, Iran has called on Boeing officials to conduct an investigation into the crash. The plane crashed just hours after Iran targeted two US military bases with over a dozen ballistic missiles in Iraq.

I'm in contact with the person who send this video to see if I can get a version of video which has a meta data on it pic.twitter.com/HtesW5uecB— Nariman (@NarimanGharib) January 9, 2020
