Niloufar Sadr 62 died in the plane crash outside of Tehran on Wednesday

The crash killed 11 Ukrainians (two passengers and all nine crew), 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, ten Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans, and three Britons.

Iran retaliated on Wednesday by firing missiles at Iraqi bases where USA troops were stationed, but did not kill any Americans.

There are also reports of memorial services conducted for the victims of the Ukrainian plane crash by the students of Tehran University's School of Management, Khajeh Nassir University, the University of Science and Industry in Tehran, Bou Ali University of Hamedan, the University of Damghan, Noshirvani University of Babol, and Paris University of Karaj.

"Death to the dictator", other footage showed protesters shouting, directing their fury directly at Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader since 1989.

Video also showed dozens of police in riot gear in another area of Tehran. What appears to be gunfire can be heard. Videos released by a human rights group and verified by The Associated Press show bloodied demonstrators being carried away from the scene. A pool of blood is seen on the ground.

The protests spread to at least a dozen cities outside the capital, and Tehran security forces fired tear gas, rubber bullets and some live ammunition to disperse the crowds.

"Police treated people who had gathered with patience and tolerance", General Rahimi told Iranian media.

Spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi has blasted US President Donald Trump for writing a tweet in Farsi, in which he backed the anti-government protesters in Iran.

Iran HRM also reported stories of two students-Nabi Tardast and Mohammad Esmaili-who were arrested during the Sunday protests and whose whereabouts are allegedly unknown.

Hassan Rezaeifar, the director-general of the Iran Civil Aviation Organization, said Iran was ready to share evidence that the plane was not hit by a missile.

The summit came as the head of Niger's army was replaced after two of the deadliest attacks on its soldiers in living memory. France's Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly on Saturday echoed similar concerns about this growing French hostility.

Taraneh Alidoosti, one of Iran's most famous actresses, posted a picture of a black square on Instagram with the caption: "We are not citizens". Prystaiko said Ukraine was not informed by Iran that it would be taking responsibility before that public announcement.

What's the latest on the Flight PS752?

"The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment".

"On these sad days, numerous criticisms were raised against the country's officials; some of us have been accused of lying and secrecy". Speaking to the Today programme, the Conservative peer said: "I think what has happened is part of the regime, the Revolutionary Guards, have concealed from the rest of the regime what had actually happened".

Sweden's Transport Agency announced on January 10 that it had temporarily halted Iran Air flights between Sweden and Iran after the deadly crash.

This commander suggested the government could have waited "two or three months" before revealing the cause of crash so that the Guards could continue to enjoy public support over the missile attack on two United States bases in Iraq.

Gen Hajizadeh said he had informed "officials" on Wednesday about the unintentional strike.

Demonstrations over the "unforgivable mistake" started over the weekend.

The British foreign secretary Dominic Raab called the move a violation of worldwide law: "The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment".

The family has not yet finalized where the couple's remains will be buried, but Ms. Madani said she hopes the fact that her sister and brother-in-law both held Iranian and Canadian citizenship will not complicate any potential repatriation process.
