Aviation experts question glitch theory

Several aviation experts have discounted Iran's claim that the aircraft fell-off sky due to a technical glitch. Ukrainian Airlines flight PS 752 in the most likely scenario may have been shot down by an Iranian agent by mistake.

Ukraine on Friday said that it was looking at several possibilities including a missile strike. In the meantime, it has now emerged that Iran that had earlier refused to hand over the black box (flight recorder) of the Boeing aircraft, on Thursday said that the recorder was damaged in the accident. At present Ukraine is still negotiating with the Iranian regime for permission to visit the crash area with a team of experts for investigating the cause.
