    > Iran is facing fresh pressure to give a full accounting of how the Ukrainian plane with 176 people on board was shot down over Tehran last week.

    > For three days after the tragedy Iran denied any responsibility but after international pressure, the hardline Revolutionary Guards admitted that the plane had been mistaken for a "Cruise missile" and shot down.

    > UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the BBC on Tuesday that he was "Glad" Iran had acknowledged making a "Terrible mistake" in shooting down the plane.
