2:02 pm
people on board most of them iranian and canadian were killed in the crash risk game just hours after iran launch an attack against u.s. targets in neighboring iraq. verified by 2 media outlets appears to show the plane exploding in the sky just seconds before it crashed western leaders say the evidence points towards an iranian missile. scores of canadian nationals were killed in the crash. prime minister justin trudeau attended a vigil in the capital ottawa earlier he announced what he believes brought down the plane. we have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence. the evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a rainy and a surface to air missile. this may well have been unintentional. this
2:03 pm
new information reinforces the need for a thorough investigation into this matter. u.s. officials have told us media they have quote a high degree of certainty that it was a missile that hit the plane president donald trump echoed the theory that it might have been an accident but iran's vehemently denies the theory that the plane was downed by knowing. that the thing that is clear to us and that we can say with certainty is that this plane was not hit by a missile. as i said last night the plane was on fire for one and a half minutes yes. russian a flight shows that the pilot was attempting to return. to the ukrainian international airlines flight was traveling from tehran to kiev with
2:04 pm
176 people on board the boeing 737 crashed in good visibility just minutes after takeoff. most of the victims were from iran many of them dual iranian canadian citizens due to take a connecting flight to canada. western leaders are demanding full transparency from tehran the focus is now on the black box flight recorders they could hold the key to revealing the cost of the crash. joining me now is the quartet he's a senior investigator and belling katz that's an investigative collective welcome make now yellow organizations verified the video clip allegedly showing the airplane being hit by something what exactly were you able to confirm. so we found this video yesterday it appears to show a missile impacting an object in the sky we worked out precisely where that video
2:05 pm
was taken and we noted the else use we believe but we worked out location of the explosion and it's precisely in the flight path of the plane so we believe that the video shows a missile like to hitting the plane. also pitches of myside fragments circulating on the internet what do they show and what do we know about the attend to city of those speeches so there are 2 images showing the heads of tall missiles with missiles. these have not been verified they do not appear to have been posted only has not previously. however we cannot work out precisely where these images were taken so they remain on birthright images ok there are also reports now that bulldozers on being used to clear the crash site what does the investigation show so we 1st started hearing these rumors yesterday.
2:06 pm
and this morning a news crew much to get to the scene and appears the crash site has been cleared needless to say that would not be beneficial for any kind of investigation that was carried out ok not the best on your evidence that you're going to as issue has a very defined uncollected what do you think happened to that plane. so currently the information makes me lean towards believing that this plane was in fact hit by a missile. we cannot confirm to any level of. us but i think it's also important to note that you or any authorities can be certain . that it was a technical malfunction. yes so we have basically saying it is not not possible to say but it was definitively a missile strike nad look and it can go so they do not that the iranian version that it was a mechanical failure so we suddenly have
2:07 pm
a video that shows an explosion on the flight path of this plane which appears to be caused by a missile. of course no one can be certain and so the investigation is complete however the information that we have that's available to us indicates this plane was a missile this new quote is from the investigative journalism collective that in cats thank you very much for that. and of course for the families of victims it's really important to find out the cause of the crash that we now do and aviation expert stephen stephen the focus right now is on the blacks in black box inside the court is recovered from the crash site do we know it's in a condition to be analyzed properly and if so what kind of information can we get from them. the black boxes have been recovered by the iranians already so there are photos of both of these devices. being removed and then presented to the
2:08 pm
maid typically what happens is that they're right by accident investigation all sources with the hardware specialization to be able to download all the promises will they be able to read the riot absolutely the material the way that they work is that they use effectively computer chips inside. i stainless steel box is pretty much indestructible and it's a case of then taking these boxes to realistically a 3rd country so maybe somewhere like france where it can be plugged into a computer and then everything is downloaded. and see what the debris now if this plane was brought down by a missile surely there would be signs of explosive material on the debris of the plane exactly and these were some of the things that came to light off to the mh 17 shoot down which is the malaysian air line that was
2:09 pm
shot down over the ukraine a few years ago and the dodge accident investigation authorities were able to pinpoint where the missile flew up to where it detonated how it damages the aircraft and then how the aircraft was then brought down before it crashed so the physical evidence is what the ukrainian crash investigation tell you will be looking to secure and to then light as much information as possible during these early stages so i guess we just have to wait to see what the investigation reveals stephen wright an aviation expert thank you very much for that. meanwhile in the u.s. the house of representatives has voted to limit president donald trump's ability to engage in military conflict against iran the chamber voted almost completely along party lines to pass a resolution it would become
