USA safety agency joins probe of Ukrainian plane crash in Iran

Japanese Defence Minister Taro Kono was set to issue the deployment order later on Friday for a warship and two P-3C patrol planes for information gathering to protect Japanese ships in the Middle East

"It's now up to experts to investigate and to find answers to the question of what caused the crash".

However, the head of Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, Ali Abedzadeh, said it was "impossible that a missile hit the Ukrainian plane".

State television earlier showed the battered black boxes, saying their information could be downloaded and analyzed.

The jet crashed on Wednesday near Tehran's shortly after takeoff, killing all 176 people on board. Those killed in the crash also include ten Swedes, four citizens of Afghanistan, three Germans, and three Britons.

The Iranian government said the missile strike scenario made "no sense", however, arguing that several internal and worldwide flights had been sharing approximately the same airspace.

It is Iran's worst civil aviation disaster since 1988 when the U.S. military said it shot down an Iran Air plane by mistake, killing all 290 people on board.

A statement from Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said: "Given the body of information that UIA Flight 752 was shot down by an Iranian Surface to Air Missile, and the heightened tensions, we are now advising British nationals not to travel to Iran".

On social media, many Iranians expressed anger that the plane was allowed to take off and voiced worries as images, which could not be independently verified, circulated on Twitter suggesting the crash site had been cleared by bullozers.

A USA official, citing satellite data, said Washington had concluded with a high degree of certainty that anti-aircraft missiles brought down the plane in error.

Iran denied that the airliner had been hit by a missile.

The report also said that both of the plane's black boxes - which record flight data - had been recovered for analysis, although they had sustained some damage.

"This is an attempt to wake your conscience.do not participate in the counterattack of those hostile to Iran after the initial slap", Hesamodin Ashena tweeted, referring to Iran's missile attack on USA forces in Iraq.

Canada's transportation safety board on Thursday said it had accepted an invitation from Iran's civil aviation authority to join the inquiry.
