REPORT: Iran announces arrests in downing of Ukrainian plane

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:

Iran announced Tuesday authorities have arrested those responsible for accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane last week as President Hassan Rouhani said that anyone involved in the “painful and unforgivable” mishap “should be punished.”

The arrests come as Iran’s judiciary also has taken 30 people into custody over street protests that have erupted inside the Islamic Republic following the plane disaster. The shootdown and the lack of transparency from Iranian officials – who initially claimed the crash was the result of a mechanical failure – has reignited anger at the country’s leadership.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The judiciary should form a special court with a ranking judge and dozens of experts,” President Rouhani said in a speech televised in Iran. “This is not an ordinary case. The entire world will be watching this court.”
