An Iranian officer mistook a Ukrainian jetliner for an incoming cruise missile and decided to fire on it, Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh of the Revolutionary Guard said Saturday. In a broadcast on state TV, the general accepted full responsibility for the plane crash outside Tehran on Wednesday hours after Iran launched a ballistic missile attack on U.S. positions in Iraq. All 176 people on board were killed.
