Iran admits it 'unintentionally' shot down Ukrainian plane 4.5
Iran has admitted its military shot down a Ukranian passenger jet, by accident, killing all 176 people on board.
The plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Tehran on Wednesday - after Iran fired missiles targeting US forces based in Iraq.
Western countries had been piling pressure on Iran - which had spent days denying that it was responsible for the crash.
The attack was in response to the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in a US drone strike in Baghdad.
It is Iran's worst civil aviation disaster since 1988 when the US military said it shot down an Iran Air plane over the Gulf by mistake.

Al Jazeera's Assed Baig joins us live from Tehran with updates.

So, the only people Iran managed to kill in their "revenge" attack were more Iranians... hmm..

They had to admit it. Too much evidence

When they said it's unscientific and illogical for an anti-aircraft missile to have hit an aircraft, it pretty much said it all.

Stupid and utter incompetent. They can’t even own up to their own crime, and blame US instead. Their hypocrisy knows no bound.

If Iran wasn't caught with their pants down they would have lied through their teeth about this and shifted the blame. This is the behaviour of a country who must not aquire nukes.

So 56 people died at Soleimani's funeral and they killed 178 on the plane by accident.
But they killed no one with 16 missiles they launched into

The only time Iran tells the truth is when the rest of the World is squeezing its throat.
