Specialists have found the “secret elements” from a Ukrainian carrier that slammed in Iran Wednesday and killed every one of the 176 individuals on board, state media announced.
Supporter IRIB said the flight information and cockpit voice recorders were found at the accident site close Parand, around 35 miles southwest of Tehran. The Boeing 737 went down not long after it left Imam Khomeini International Airport.
The leader of Iran’s thoughtful flying authority said Tehran would not give the recorders to U.S.- based Boeing, Iran’s semiofficial news office Mehr revealed.
The flight slammed with 167 travelers and nine team on board.
“Tragically, every one of the travelers kicked the bucket,” Pir-Hossein Koulivand, Iran’s Emergency Medical Service boss, said.
Among the dead were 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans and three Britons, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said in a tweet.
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a Facebook post he would stop a visit in Oman and come back to Kiev.
Ali Khashani, a senior authority at Imam Khomeini International Airport, said the accident was likely the aftereffect of a specialized disappointment. The Ukrainian Embassy in Tehran at first concurred with that appraisal, precluding the probability of an assault, yet accordingly said it couldn’t preclude any potential reason and conceded to an official commission to research.
