Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he has intelligence that indicates a passenger plane that crashed in Iran was shot down.
He described the crash as a “tragedy that not only shocked Canada, but the rest of the world”.
He added: “We have intelligence from multiple sources, including our allies and our own intelligence.
“The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile. This may well have been unintentional.
“The news will undoubtedly come as a further shock to the families who are already grieving,” he said, adding that the new information “reinforces the need for a thorough investigation into this matter”.
