Sweden has asked for full access to the investigation into what happened to the Ukrainian plane that crashed near Tehran on Wednesday, after Canada shared intelligence saying the jet was shot down by an Iranian missile.

At least 10 Swedes as well as 63 Canadians were among the 167 passengers killed on the Ukrainian Airlines flight.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to his Swedish counterpart Stefan Löfven on Thursday to share intelligence showing the jet was downed by an Iranian missile.

Sweden's Foreign Minister Ann Linde told Swedish Radio that a transparent investigation to which Sweden and Canada have full access is required.
