Iran has signaled Canada could play active role in downed plane investigation

OTTAWA, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Iran has signaled that Canada's Transportation Safety Board (TSB) would be allowed to play an active role in the investigation of the Iranian military's shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner last week, TSB head Kathy Fox said on Monday.

A missile, which Iran said was fired by accident, brought down the plane, killing all 176 aboard, including 57 Canadians. (Reporting by Steve Scherer; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
