Canada demands Iran to settle liability crash victims
There were 57 Canadians in the Ukrainian passenger plane that Wednesday, it appears, was shot by Iran. Now that Iran has declared guilt, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is demanding a settlement for liability.
He wants a transparent and in-depth investigation into the incident, which is felt in Canada as a national tragedy. “The government of Canada expects full cooperation from the Iranian authorities,” he says.
All 176 passengers of the aircraft were killed when it crashed from Tehran shortly after taking off. Iran initially denied that it had anything to do with the crash, but evidence to the contrary accumulated.
This morning, the Iranian authorities admitted that the aircraft was shot from the sky because it was mistaken for an enemy target. “That happened as a result of a human error and unintentional”, according to a statement from the army.
