    > Iran's main insurance agency says compensations that should be paid over a recent plane crash near the capital Tehran which was caused by human error in the country's defense system could amount to $150 million.

    > Gholamreza Soleimani, who serves as the president of the Central Insurance of Iran, said on Monday that Iran would show a good level of cooperation with Ukraine, the country which owned the Boeing 737-800 that was shot down on January 8, on compensation settlement issues related to the incident.

    > Ukraine International Airlines has indicated that it would pay 200,000 hryvnia each to the families of those who died in the plane crash although Kiev authorities have said that they expect Iran to burden much of the compensation.

  3. For some context, the US paid compensation of $131.8 million in 1996 for shooting down flight 655, which had 290 people on board. Of that, about $70 million was for the plane itself.
