Iran admits shooting down Ukrainian airliner ‘unintentionally’

‘Human error’ blamed as admission comes after initial denials were contradicted by western allies’ intelligence.

Iran had denied for several days that a missile downed the aircraft. But then the US and Canada, citing intelligence, said they believed Iran shot it down.

The plane, en route to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, was carrying 167 passengers and nine crew members from several countries, including 82 Iranians, at least 63 Canadians and 11 Ukrainians.
