The secretary of Ukraine's national security council says seven possible causes are under investigation in the plane crash in Iran earlier this week. Oleksiy Danilov tells a Swedish broadcaster that Ukrainian experts are working at the site near Tehran where the Ukrainian jetliner with 176 people on board crashed.

Sixty-three Canadians died. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other Western leaders say the plane appears to have been hit by a surface-to-air missile near Tehran -- an allegation that Iran denies.

The head of Iran's investigation team into the crash tells state television that Tehran will use expert help from Russia, Ukraine, France and Canada ``if we cannot recover data'' from the plane's recorders.

Canada's Transportation Safety Board says it is making arrangements for investigators to travel to Tehran
