Canada will aid PS752 investigation

Fallout is ongoing in the wake of the recent Tehran flight disaster. Among a very limited amount of positive development, officials have agreed to somewhat more cooperation between Canada and Iran during the investigation and recovery efforts.

Canadian investigators will be permitted significant levels of access to the investigation, including observing data transfer from the plane’s black boxes. The RCMP is also cooperating with a request to collect DNA to assist with identifying bodies.

In the meantime, Canadian officials have revised the official Canadian casualty count to 57, and Iran has admitted its military fired the surface-to-air missile that destroyed the plane. Though that solves one mystery, a great deal of work remains to be done.
