Iran is facing legal action at the International Court of Justice over the shooting down of Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 in January 2020.

Four nations – Canada, Sweden, Ukraine and the UK – are seeking damages for the families of the 176 people on board who were killed.

The plane was hit by two missiles fired by a Revolutionary Guards air defence unit after it took off from Tehran.

Three days later, Iran admitted mistakenly shooting down the plane.
