Iran plane crash: Protesters condemn 'lies' on downed jet

Recommended Posts

Hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets in Iran's capital, Tehran, to vent anger at officials, calling them liars for having denied shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane.

Protests took place outside at least two universities, with tear gas reportedly fired.

US President Donald Trump tweeted support for the "inspiring" protests.

Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752, en route to Kyiv, was shot down on Wednesday near Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran shortly after take-off, and only hours after Iran had fired missiles at two air bases housing US forces in Iraq.

The students called for those responsible for the downing the plane, and those they said had covered up the action, to be prosecuted.

Chants included "commander-in-chief resign", referring to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and "death to liars".

Fars said police had "dispersed" the protesters, who were blocking roads. Social media footage appeared to show tear gas being fired.

Social media users also vented anger at the government's actions.

The UK ambassador to Iran was arrested during anti-government protests in Tehran after officials admitted shooting down a passenger plane.

Rob Macaire was held for three hours, in what the UK described as a "flagrant violation of international law".

The knock on from the plane shoot down seems to have played well into the Trump regimes hands. That the Iranian military are clearly shown to be a bunch of bumbling buffoons could not be more beneficial. Who'd a thunk that killing a general could reap such a reward.

I wish he'd fuck off, if he hadn't pulled out of the Iran agreement, purely because it was one that Obama had set up - none of this would be happening.

The Iranian authorities are everything, that has been said, bad and worse, but they were contained. they were under control and they were mostly harmless, enter the stupid orange pile of shit...

People are dying because Trump wanted to undo something Obama had done.

Dislosure: my close friend's, best friend's son, 16, died on that plane. Trump, is getting too close to me, I want him gone.

Iran students refuse to walk over US and Israeli flags

Many students at a university in Tehran have openly avoided walking over US and Israeli flags in an apparent show of defiance again the Iranian government.

Video shows the students walking around, rather than across, the flags at Shahid Beheshti University campus. The flags were painted on the ground so that those walking along the route would thereby insult both countries - which Iran considers staunch enemies.

Thousands of protesters chanting anti-government slogans have taken to the streets after Iran's military admitted it had mistakenly downed a passenger plane.

Looks like the students also want the ayatollahs gone.
