Tehran 12 January_US President Donald Trump has, in a tweeted message, supported protesters in Iran who were angry at the government’s way of handling the aftermaths of a plane crash last week.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)-A protest was held in front of the Amir Kabir University in downtown Tehran on Saturday after Iranian armed forces headquarters issued a statement clarifying circumstances surrounding the crash of a Ukraine International Airlines plane on January 8 which killed 176 people on board.

The statement said the Boeing 737-800, on its way to Kiev and ultimately bound for Canada’s Toronto, had been shot down accidentally hours after Iran fired missiles at two American military bases in neighboring Iraq early on Wednesday.

Trump was quick to take to Twitter on Saturday, saying in both Farsi and English that his “administration will continue to stand with” the protesters.
