Iran now claims its military “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian jetliner this week, killing all 176 people aboard.
The announcement, which cited “human error” for the strike, came Saturday via Iranian state television and referred to a statement from the military, according to the Associated Press.
Iran had previously denied involvement in the crash, contrary to claims from the U.S. and Canada that pointed to Iran.
