WASHINGTON: New video footage has emerged showing two Iranian missiles tearing through the night sky and hitting a Ukrainian passenger plane, sending the aircraft down in flames and killing all 176 passengers and crew on board. The blurry film, shot from a rooftop in a village four miles from an Iranian military site, shows the Kiev-bound plane on fire and circling back to Tehran's airport, the Times said. Iran had for days denied Western claims that the Boeing 737 had been downed by its missiles. On Tuesday Tehran said it had made its first arrests over the shooting down of the plane, though it gave no details.
