Ukraine trying to determine number of citizens killed in Iran plane crash

KIEV, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Ukraine is trying to establish how many of its citizens were killed in a plane crash in Iran, Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk said on Wednesday.

In a statement, Honcharuk said 167 passengers and 9 crew had been registered to fly, citing preliminary data, and added that a Ukrainian consular official was at the crash site.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy broke off a visit to Oman to return to Kiev because of the crash, his office said in a separate statement. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; writing by Matthias Williams)
