Canada To Seek Probe of Iran Plane Crash

Just recently, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Canada would demand a thorough investigation following the Ukrainian plane that crashed in Iran. The plane crash has apparently claimed lives of 63 Canadians.

“I join Canadians across the country who are shocked and saddened to see reports that a plane crash outside of Tehran, Iran, has claimed the lives of 176 people, including 63 Canadians. Our government will continue to work closely with its international partners to ensure that this crash is thoroughly investigated, and that Canadians’ questions are answered,” states Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in an article by Philippine Star.

Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) stated that Flight PS752 left Tehran Airport at 6:10am and disappeared from two radars just minutes later. Casualties include 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 10 Swedes, 4 Afghans, 3 Germans and 3. There were also 11 Ukrainians, including the nine crew, who were also on board.
