Iran admits that it unintentionally shot down Ukraine's passenger plane on Wednesday, mistaking it for a cruise missile. The country's president called the incident "an unforgivable mistake". As Iran's foreign minister blames Washington's adventurism for tensions that led to the downing, the US Secretary of State is grilled by reporters who demand a justification for the killing of Iran's top general. In the meantime, the US hails its military in Iraq as a force for good in the Middle East - after Baghdad asks American troops to leave the country.
