CBS News reports:
Iranian officials have denied claims that they mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet. The plane crashed early Wednesday morning soon after takeoff from Tehran’s airport, killing everyone on board.
A video obtained by the New York Times appears to show the impact. In it you can see a bright flash, which sources tell CBS News senior foreign correspondent Elizabeth Palmer was likely the explosion of two surface-to-air missiles.
Surveillance cameras picked up a shower of debris from the Ukrainian Boeing 737-800 that crashed just minutes after takeoff from Tehran’s main airport, killing 176 people.
“If they are really sure, they should come and show their findings to the world,” the head of Iran’s national aviation department said in response to Canada/U.S. claims that an Iranian missile downed the Ukrainian jetliner.https://t.co/MNwaV5fJiw
