Ukrinform
CNN has released a video that appears to show a missile being fired into the Tehran sky and striking an object, around the same time that a Ukrainian plane crashed just after taking off from the city's airport.

According to CNN, news of the video comes hours after the leaders of Canada and Britain said that they have intelligence that the Ukrainian airliner was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.

A Ukraine International Airlines plane (flight PS752), en route from Tehran to Kyiv, crashed shortly after taking off from the Imam Khomeini International Airport early on Wednesday, January 8.

There were 176 people on board the aircraft - 167 passengers (including two Ukrainians) and nine crew (all Ukrainians). Most victims of the Ukrainian plane crash in Tehran are citizens of Iran (82) and Canada (63). The crash also killed ten Swedes, four citizens of Afghanistan, three Germans, and three Britons.
