Trudeau suggests missile downed Ukraine jet

Japanese Defence Minister Taro Kono was set to issue the deployment order later on Friday for a warship and two P-3C patrol planes for information gathering to protect Japanese ships in the Middle East

"It is impossible that a missile hit the Ukrainian plane", Iran's head of civil aviation was quoted by Iran's INSA news agency as saying.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said he had instructed his prosecutor general to open a criminal investigation into the crash.

Under rules set by a United Nations aviation organisation, the NTSB is entitled to participate because the crash involved a Boeing 737-800 jet that was designed and built in the US.

The Boeing 737 crashed on Wednesday (Jan 8) shortly after Tehran launched missiles at USA forces in Iraq in response to the killing of a top Iranian general in a U.S. drone strike in Baghdad.

Meanwhile, American, Canadian and French representatives plan to travel to Tehran to attend meetings for the Iran-led probe into the crash, Iranian state media reported Friday.

Speaking in Canada, Mr Raab said: "We agree with the Canadian assessment that indicates that Ukrainian International Airlines flight was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile, and as (Canadian foreign minister) Francois-Philippe (Champagne) said it may well have been unintentional".

The statements from Britain and Canada came as video footage emerged that appeared to show the moment the airliner was hit.

MLB Hammers Astros with Historic Punishments After Cheating Probe
The replay room was still relaying signs in the 2018 regular season before the players stopped, believing it ineffective. The report said the Astros used the team's replay room to decipher the signs of the opposing catcher.

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, whose country lost at least 63 citizens in the crash, said in Ottawa: "We have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence".

U.S. officials said the airliner might have been mistakenly identified as a threat.

Ukraine's general prosecutor asked Canada "to provide information available to the Canadian side that may facilitate criminal investigations" into the crash. A video that the New York Times says it has verified appears to be consistent with this version of events.

France is the co-manufacturer of the plane's engines, and has offered its expertise because it is one of the few countries able to comprehensively decipher black box data. US military satellites detect infrared emissions from heat.

Investigations into airliner crashes can take months and initial reports in 24 hours are rare.

Boeing said it would support the NTSB.
