Iran invites global aviation monitor to support crash probe

Video shows protests in Tehran as Trump tweets support

"They are lying that our enemy is America, our enemy is right here", said protesters outside a university in Tehran in another clip cited by Reuters.

Hours after that barrage, as it braced for a US counterattack that never came, Iranian forces accidentally shot down the Ukraine International Airlines jetliner, killing all 176 people aboard shortly after it took off from Tehran for Kyiv.

Will be totally up to them but, no nuclear weapons and "don't kill your protesters", Trump said on Twitter.

Riot police and plainclothes officers could be seen massing in Vali-e Asr Square and other landmarks in Tehran. There was also heavy police presence outside Tehran University. Other videos show chaotic scenes of demonstrators fleeing security forces.

His closed-session testimony comes after the temporary arrest Saturday of Britain's ambassador to Tehran, Rob Macaire, shortly after he left a vigil for the air disaster victims that turned into a protest.

The step is unusual, given that the downed plane was not a Canadian airline and the crash did not occur in Canada.

The government's admission that Iran's security forces hold ultimate responsibility for the downing of the plane - albeit at a time of conflict with their chief foe - is a further blow for the country's ruling clerics at a time when the economy has been devastated by USA sanctions.

On January 3, a United States drone strike in Iraq killed high-ranking Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani, who Washington accused of plotting terrorist attacks.

"If we had said straight away that they had shot it down, I am not sure they would have let us go to the wreckage at all, let us do what we were doing", he said. "You give us objective to pursue justice and accountability for you", the BBC quoted Trudeau as saying on Sunday while addressing a vigil Edmonton, Alberta for the 57 Canadians killed in January 8 disaster. At least 57 Canadians were among the dead.

For a growing number of critics - from ordinary citizens to notable athletes and artists - the events have revealed a government that is incapable of following through on its incendiary rhetoric and willing to mislead its own people about a national tragedy in order to avoid embarrassment. "Shooting down a civilian aircraft is horrific".

Iranian media meanwhile focused on the admission of responsibility for the crash, with several newspapers calling for those responsible to apologize and resign.

After initially denying it shot down the Ukraine airliner, Iran admitted over the weekend that one of its own surface-to-air missiles took down the Boeing 737-800, but called it a awful mistake.

"Ukrainian experts have succeeded in identifying the first body of a Ukrainian who died near Tehran on January 8, after an Iranian missile hit a Ukrainian International Airlines (UIA) plane", the statement said.

As we reported earlier, the aircraft of Ukraine's Defense Ministry will return from Iran with the bodies of 11 Ukrainians who deceased in the recent plane crash in Tehran.

The three-year-old Boeing Co.

While Europe appears reluctant to rock the boat in its relations with Iran, it has dangled the threat of triggering a mechanism that could result in United Nations sanctions being reimposed on Tehran. This was in response to President Trump authorizing an airstrike in Baghdad that killed Iranian Maj.

Doing so would remove a legal obstacle and enable Canadian victims to sue the Iranian government under the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act.

US President Donald Trump tweeted: "To the leaders of Iran - DON'T KILL YOUR PROTESTER".

"Can confirm I wasn't taking part in any demonstrations!" Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the commander of Iran's Quds force.

On Saturday, President Hassan Rouhani said a military probe into the tragedy had found "missiles fired due to human error" brought down the Boeing 737. The U.S. has instead pressed ahead with a series of measures against the Islamic Republic.

"US government leaders unconstrained by checks/balances, concocted an ill-conceived plan to divert focus from political woes", he said.
