Avión ucraniano cae en Irán

By Jordi Bou

January 8, 2020 - Un avión de pasajeros ucraniano se estrelló poco después de despegar del aeropuerto Imam Khomeini de Teherán, matando a todas las 176 personas a bordo. La mayoría de los pasajeros eran de Irán y Canadá.

The crash of Ukraine International Airlines came hours after Iran launched a ballistic missile attack on Iraqi bases housing U.S. soldiers, but Iranian officials said they suspected a mechanical issue brought down the Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Ukrainian officials initially agreed, but later backed away and declined to offer a cause while the investigation is ongoing.

The plane carried 167 passengers and nine crew members from different nations. Ukraine's foreign minister said that there were 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians and 11 Ukrainians on board. There were also 10 Swedish, four Afghan, three German and three British nationals, he said.

Airline officials said most of the passengers were en route to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
