Evidence Shows Iranian Missile Downed Ukraine Plane

乌克兰飞机坠机新证据:伊朗导弹袭击

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters Thursday that evidence suggests an Iranian missile downed a Ukrainian plane on Tuesday. He added that the strike may have been an accident.

周四,加拿大总理特鲁多对记者说,有证据显示一枚伊朗发射的导弹于周二击落了一架乌克兰飞机。他还补充说道,此次袭击可能是一场意外。

The plane went down after it took off from Tehran’s main airport. All 176 people on board were killed. At least 62 were Canadian.

那架飞机从德黑兰一个大型机场起飞后坠毁,机上176人全部遇难,其中至少62人是加拿大人。

Trudeau did not give details about the evidence. But he said a surface-to-air missile appeared to strike the plane.

特鲁多没有提供有关证据的细节。但他表示,一枚地对空导弹似乎击中了那架飞机。

Earlier, two United States officials said it is very possible that an Iranian anti-aircraft missile shot down the plane.

早些时候,两名美国官员表示,很有可能是伊朗的防空导弹击落了那架飞机。

The officials spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity. They did not explain why Iran would shoot down the plane.

这些官员均是在匿名的情况下接受了美联社的采访。他们没有解释伊朗为何要击落这架飞机。

One U.S. official told the Reuters News Agency that U.S. satellites had recorded the launch of two missiles just before the plane crashed. The launch was followed by an explosion. Two U.S. officials told Reuters they believe the missiles were launched “accidentally.” These officials all spoke anonymously.

一名美国官员告诉路透社,美国卫星记录了飞机坠毁前有两枚导弹发射出来,且导弹发射后发生了爆炸。两名美国官员告诉路透社,他们认为导弹的发射或属“意外”。这些官员均是匿名发言。

U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the issue at a news conference this morning. He dismissed Iranian claims that the plane suffered a mechanical failure.

美国总统唐纳德·特朗普在今天早上的新闻发布会上谈到了这个问题。他否认了伊朗方面关于飞机机械故障致使坠毁的说法。

“Somebody make a mistake on the other side,” Trump said, adding, “Some people said it was mechanical. I personally don’t believe that is even a question.”

特朗普还补充说:“是其他方面的人犯了错,虽然有人说这是机械故障造成的,但我个人认为那根本构不成问题。”

Iran has asked the National Transportation Safety Board of the United States to assist in the investigation. The request came through the International Civil Aviation Organization, anonymous sources told The New York Times.

伊朗已经要求美国国家运输安全委员会协助调查。匿名消息人士告诉《纽约时报》,这一请求来自国际民航组织。

Investigators from Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization offered no explanation for the disaster.

伊朗民航组织的调查人员没有对这次灾难做出解释。

Iranian officials first said the crash was caused by a technical problem. Ukrainian officials agreed. Then, Ukrainian officials appeared to back away from the Iranian decision. They said they could not come to a conclusion while the investigation was ongoing.

最开始伊朗官方表示,坠机是由技术问题引起的。乌克兰官方同意以上说法。然而之后,乌克兰官方似乎不再支持伊朗这一说法。他们表示,在调查进行期间无法给出结论。

Ukraine said a missile strike could be one of several possible causes of the crash. Oleksiy Danilov is secretary of Ukraine’s Security Council. Danilov also said there are other possible causes being considered, such as some kind of flying object hitting the plane, a terrorist attack, or a mechanical problem.

乌克兰表示,导弹袭击可能是几个导致坠机的原因之一。奥莱克西·丹尼洛夫是现任乌克兰安全理事会秘书长。丹尼洛夫还说,此次坠机还有可能是其他原因导致的,比如某种飞行物体撞击了飞机、恐怖袭击或机械故障。

However, no terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the plane was only three and a half years old.

然而,没有恐怖组织声称对此次袭击负责,而且这架飞机机龄只有三年半。

The crash came just a few hours after Iran launched a missile attack against Iraqi military bases housing U.S. troops. The attack answered the killing in Iraq last week of an Iranian general by a U.S. airstrike.

此次坠机发生几小时前,伊朗对驻伊拉克的美军基地发动了导弹袭击。此次袭击是伊朗对上周美国在伊拉克空袭暗杀一名伊朗将军的回应。

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said he planned to call Iranian President Hassan Rouhani about the crash and the investigation.

乌克兰总统弗拉基米尔·泽伦斯基表示,他计划就坠机事件和调查事宜致电伊朗总统鲁哈哈桑·鲁哈尼。

 “Undoubtedly, the priority for Ukraine is to identify the causes of the plane crash,” Zelenskiy said. “We will surely find out the truth.”

“毫无疑问,乌克兰的首要任务是查明飞机坠毁的原因,”泽伦斯基说。“我们一定会查明真相。”
