Iran agrees to compensate families of plane crash victims, Sweden says

Iran has reportedly agreed to compensate the families of the foreign victims have been killed whenever a passenger jet was blown out of the sky outside Tehran in January, a horrific crash erroneously caused by the country’s own military forces. “We have signed an agreement of mutual understanding that we will now negotiate together with Iran about amends, compensation to the victims’ next of kin,” she told Swedish news agency TT. The January crash came on the heels of Iran’s retaliatory missile strikes against American military facilities carrying out a President Trump-sanctioned drone strike that killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
