Iranian anti-government protestors filled the streets of Tehran on Saturday after the Iranian government admitted that it allegedly mistakenly shot down a Kyiv-bound commercial airplane.
Videos of the protests show people in large numbers shouting, “Khamenei is a murderer!” according to The New York Times.
Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 was shot down Wednesday shortly after leaving Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran by an Iranian surface-to-air missile. All 176 people on board — including Ukrainians, Iranians and Canadians — were killed.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described the event as “human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism” in a tweet.
