At a news conference on today, Iran showed the black box from the crashed Ukraine plane, APA reports citing CNN.
Senior Iranian Civil Aviation Authority officials said it could take one or two months to extract the data from the black boxes. They also denied the theory that the plane was mistakenly hit by a missile.
“Twelve expert groups have been set up to investigate the crash and the information must be collected in order to come up with the final conclusion,” the head of Iran's Civil Aviation Authority, Ali Abedzadeh, said at a news conference in Tehran. “So far what I can tell is the plane has not been hit by a missile, we have to look for the cause of the fire.”
