Fierce protests against government in Iranian capital, British ambassador arrested
Protesters protested against the government in the Iranian capital Tehran yesterday. The protests followed Iran’s statement that the Ukrainian passenger plane was accidentally shot out of the air on Wednesday.
A thousand protesters, mostly students, gathered at a university last night to pay tribute to the victims of the air disaster. In the crash of the Ukraine International Airline aircraft, all 176 passengers were killed, including many Iranians studying in Canada.
