Iran arrests suspects in plane shootdown, promises special court to investigate

Canada mourns 57 citizens killed in Iran crash

The Ukraine International Airlines jet came down near Tehran last Wednesday, just hours after Iran had fired missiles at U.S. bases.

"Some people are criticizing that why the government did not conduct more studies before announcing its stance, but, we sent several inquiries to the relevant officials before releasing our view and the entire relevant officials, based on their information at the time, told us that there were no any missile fire", Rabiei explained. What we don't know is why.

Natacha Van Themsche, the director of investigations, said Canadian experts also have been invited to inspect the wreckage and the crash site - an unusual step since the plane was not produced in Canada and the crash did not occur in Canada.

The first arrests have been made in Iran relating to the downing of a Ukrainian airliner last week, after a third night of angry protests shook the capital Tehran.

Trudeau has called the downing a Canadian tragedy because 138 of the passengers were headed for Canada.

The tragedy occurred with Iran's air-defense forces on high alert following an Iranian ballistic-missile attack a few hours earlier against USA forces in Iraq.

On Tuesday, Justin Trudeau blamed the showdown between Donald Trump and Iran's leaders for the deaths of the 176 people killed, saying they would still be alive if it was not for escalating tensions. This is something that happens when you have conflict and war. "Innocents bear the brunt of it".

In a series of tweets in English and Farsi, the U.S. president Donald Trump said he was monitoring demonstrations in the country and voiced his support - sentiments that analysts have said are unlikely to win the protesters favours.

But Iran's foreign ministry hit back, calling for "an immediate halt to all interference and provocation by the British embassy". Britain, in turn, summoned Iran's ambassador on Monday "to convey our strong objections" over the weekend arrest.

Trudeau also said he would have "obviously" liked a heads-up from Washington about the drone strike on Soleimani.

The circumstances around the crash are prompting questions about military procedures, why the airspace had not been closed given the tension and why commercial aircraft continued to operate even after the Ukrainian aircraft had been shot down.

But many in Canada's political and military establishment see the events differently. "The issue about whether it was accidental or intentional, that is something that investigators would normally pursue", said TSB Chair Kathy Fox. We don't take that just at face value.

He added that the global community has been "very, very clear about needing to have a non-nuclear Iran" but also in 'managing the tensions in the region that are brought about by United States actions as well'. In the case that it's found to be an accident, she said that the context of such a "tragic mistake" will need to be determined in order to prevent it from happening again.

Iran has struggled to contain the fallout over its handling of the air disaster, after initially dismissing Western claims it was brought down by a missile before admitting it on Saturday.

Rouhani made the comments during a televised speech amid the country's widespread anger over the Iranian government shooting down the plane and then misleading the public about it. She said the agency hopes to play a larger role in the investigation.

The captain of the national men's volleyball team, Said Marouf, wrote on Instagram about "oppression" in Iran.
