Canadian Experts Returning Home After Probing Tehran Plane Crash, TSB Says

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 23 Jan, 2020
  • Canadian Experts Returning Home After Probing Tehran Plane Crash, TSB Says

OTTAWA - The Transportation Safety Board says two investigators are heading back to Canada after six days in Tehran and two in Kyiv, helping probe the downing of a Ukraine International Airlines jet.

 

Iran has admitted firing surface-to-air missiles at the airliner as it left Tehran's international airport Jan. 8, saying it was a mistake.

 

Fifty-seven Canadian citizens were among the 176 people killed.

 

The TSB says it understands the plane's flight-data recorders are still in Iran, while the country's authorities consider how to download and analyze the information they contain.

 

It says a different set of Canadian investigators will be there "wherever and whenever that activity takes place."

 

The investigators are still seeking a bigger role in the probe, but the TSB says the Iranian authorities have been co-operative and helpful.
