Canadians continue to mark one year of downing of Flight PS752 in Iran

news-update

Commemorations continue today for the victims of a passenger jet shot down by the Iranian military one year ago today.
    
They began Thursday with a livestream at 9:42 p.m. ET, the exact moment Flight PS752 took off from the airport near the capital of Tehran.
    
Voices of loved ones speaking Farsi, some wishing to talk to those who died, others wanting to know their last thoughts, played over videos and photos of faces young and old.
    
A few hours later, biographies of the 176 victims, many of them with ties to Canada, were read throughout the night.
    
The Association of Families of Flight PS752 Victims group organized the services.
    
Later today, outdoor rallies are to take place in various cities, including Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton.
