Footage appears to show ‘Iranian missile’ bring down Ukrainian plane

Video shows an “Iranian missile” streaking across the night sky in Tehran – before a Ukrainian passenger plane explodes in a fireball with 176 on board.

The Boeing 737-800 came down hours after Iran launched a barrage of rockets against US targets in Iraq – leading to fears jittery air defence troops targeted the plane by mistake.

The explosion killed all 176 on board the Boeing 737-800 including 63 Canadians and three Britons.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the intelligence points to Iranian surface-to-air rockets.
