Tehran admits it ‘unintentionally’ shot down plane

Iranian officials have admitted that its military “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian airliner, killing all 176 people on board.

State television, reading out a military statement, blamed “human error” for sho-oting down the plane that came down over Tehran on Wednesday.

It comes after days of denials from Iran that it played any role in the disaster.

Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, said in a tweet that the accident happened during a “crisis caused by US adventurism”.

“A sad day. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”
