The Islamic Republic took over a few days later. This is a “human error,” according to a final report by Tehran’s Civil Aviation Organization last March. All 176 people on board were killed, including 55 Canadian citizens and 30 passengers with permanent residency in Canada. Ten Iranian soldiers responsible for the incident are being investigated.
