made a hasty decision and a tragic accident followed its mobile phone videos on the internet showed the launch of the anti aircraft missile runs late is admitted the mistake supreme leader cumani apologized to relatives of the victims and president rouhani and foreign minister said eve announced punishment of those responsible and compensations for the families affected but as candles laid for the victims in tehran many of the mourners may feel apologies will not be enough. and iran expert tropper talked to us earlier on the situation in tehran here's what she had to say about the protests felt by many iranians turned into anger quite quickly both abroad and within the country itself we're seeing a lot of responses on social media where people out blaming the revolutionary guards for the tragedy they're asking why they did not declare a no fly zone while they knew that the confrontation with the united states would get worse they're asking what took them so long to acknowledge their. fault and
12:04 am
also demanding consequences some even calling for the resignation of the supreme leader of course and that's something security forces within the islamic republic usually cannot tolerate so. also hearing reports of internet connection getting worse in some parts of the country so that could indicate that the islamic republic is trying to shut down social media again just like it did during the last wave of protests to silence its critics the problem apparently was that it took a long time until everybody within the islamic republic knew what had actually happened because you have to see that it was not in iran's military. shot down that plane but the revolutionary guards that's a powerful organization designed to protect the public political system and they said when they noticed that they had made a mistake they decided not to go public but had an investigation 1st and from what we hear the country's president and even the supreme leader only learned about all
12:05 am
of that data and that it was then and then within decided to go public with it. i was to raise the tropper talking to us earlier 57 canadians died in the plane crash making them the 2nd largest group of victims by nationality after iran's admission that it shot down the plane canada's prime minister justin trudeau addressed reporters about a story that has shocked the country. with iran has admitted to this very serious shooting down a civilian aircraft is horrific iran must take full responsibility. canada will not rest until we get the accountability justice and closure that the families deserve. and joining us for more is c.b.c. reporter evan dyer in ottawa evan trudeau said he was furious and outraged and talked about the need for accountability and justice but what does that mean
12:06 am
exactly. well actually he was pressed on that several times and i must mention by the way it isn't 63 canadian victims rather than 57 by the canadian count there were some confusions over dual citizenship since all of the canada considers 63 of its citizens to have died in this crash he was asked about that and he gave quite a few variations on the answer of we'll see what justice looks like in the coming weeks we're going to have discussions with other allies and so on he didn't really get into the details on justice and accountability but transparency we understand means inspections and that's what the canadian side is working on right now there are 3 canadian officials who we believe landed in tehran about 2 hours ago canada has no diplomatic presence of course in tehran so they travel to great certainty where they were given 3 visas 3 officials went ahead but the understanding is that there but i know consular officials they're there to deal with consular matters such as repatriation of remains to canada kind of course really wants to get its
12:07 am
air crash inspectors from the church protection safety board to look at the actual evidence of the crash although the main question of course already been answered the plane was brought down by a missile and other questions about who gave the order and so on maybe out of the reach of air crash. how is the canadian public as a whole reacting to all this. wild there's a lot of outrage there's a lot of sadness too i must say that these were you know this was a plane which had entire families and had some very talented people with promising futures there were a huge loss of people for example you know bert and many of them were researchers from the university of alberta which seems to taken a particularly hard hit just some you know some very promising people or on that plane as well as people who were just on their way home making a difficult journey because it's hard to reach your own from can a difficult story to see families and i guess you know one of the differences actually with this crash from the air india crash which was the biggest terrorist
12:08 am
incident came to history that killed about 300 people most of whom were indian and canadian dual citizens at the time the prime minister back in 1900 sent condolences to india almost overlooking the fact that most of people on that plane were canadians that this is a very well integrated community today irani in community very much part of the national fabric and is there a perception that people died because of the standoff between the united states and iran and if so between washington and tehran which side do you think canadians might blame or. mort iran i don't think there's any doubt about that but i think i mean there will be people of course we take the opposite position but i don't think they'd be the majority what i do think though is that some blame is at least for what we've seen from the direction of the prime minister he's been asked on a couple of occasions whether he blamed the united states he didn't take the bait but he certainly didn't say no of course not we blame the ones who pulled the trigger
12:09 am
on the missile given answers more along the lines of those are questions we're going to be looking at and those are questions canadians going to ask themselves as well so certainly there's a sense that canada should have been ward before these initial it's actually assassination or general sold it money because canada has troops in iraq both just part of nato mission iraq in baghdad and at the base in irbil which was hit by ballistic missiles fired from iran and canada had no warning of the attack that was going to leave that rebel ok well thank you for that c.b.c. reporter evan di reporting from ottawa thanks very much and german chancellor angela merkel has welcomed iran's admission that it was responsible for the downing of the plane her comments came following a meeting with russian president vladimir putin in moscow on saturday a crash was just one of the many urgent items on their agenda. under the americal on her way to a quick meeting with vladimir putin the list of international crises is long iran
