As a parallel, many Indonesians are Muslims, as are some Nigerians. But neither are Arabs.

Default Person that shot video is arrested

The person that shot the video of the 737 being hit by the missile has been arrested on charges related to national security (i.e. Iran wouldn't have had to own up if not for the video). I doubt that person will ever been seen again.

Recording shows Iran knew immediately it had shot down plane: Zelenskiy

Natalia Zinets, Babak DehghanpishehKIEV/DUBAI (Reuters) - A leaked audio recording of an Iranian pilot talking to the control tower in Tehran shows that Iran knew immediately it had shot down a Ukrainian airliner last month, despite denying it for days, Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskiy said.

On the recording, played on a Ukrainian television station late on Sunday, the pilot of another plane can be heard saying he saw “the light of a missile” in the sky before Ukrainian International Airways flight 752 crashed in an explosion.

Tehran blamed the Ukrainian authorities for leaking what it described as confidential evidence, and said it would no longer share material with Ukraine from the investigation into the crash.

All 176 people aboard the flight were killed when the plane crashed shortly after takeoff en route from Tehran to Kiev on Jan. 8.
