Canada’s Transportation Safety Board on July 24 said that an international team has finished the preliminary investigative analysis of the black boxes in connection with the Ukrainian jetliner that was accidentally shot down by Iran in January this year.
In a statement, board chair Katy Fox said, “The work in Paris is finished, but the investigation is far from over. There are still many key questions that need to be answered,” urging further Iran to release information as soon as possible, adding further that the country, leading the investigation, has not authorized the board to release details.
It must be noted that the Ukraine International Airlines plane was hit by two missiles on January 8 after taking off from Teheran for Kyiv and crashed, claiming all 176 lives onboard. Days later, Iran admitted that the airline was shot by its forces accidently.
