Iran admitted to mistakenly shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 last week shortly after takeoff, killing all 176 people aboard, including 63 Canadians.

The wife and 11-year-old son of a Maple Leaf Foods employee were among the dead, McCain said.

“We are mourning and I am livid,” he tweeted.
