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.”

After insisting that the plane crashed as a result of mechanical failure, Iran finally admitted days later that its own military had shot down the plane, killing all 176 people on board, including 82 Iranians, 57 Canadians, and several from other countries.
