Many questions remain about the crash of a Ukraine International Airlines plane in Iran on Wednesday, which killed all 176 on board.




The exact timeline of the crash is yet to emerge, while most victims are yet to be identified.




But most speculation is about the actual cause of the flight, which happened as Iran directed missile strikes on Iraqi bases that housed US troops.




Iranian authorities are distancing themselves from the idea that the plane was shot down, though the airline is defending the quality of the jet and its crew.




It is also unclear what role the US and Boeing, the American manufacturer of the plane, will play in the investigations amid the high tensions between the US and Iran.
