Family of Canadian who died in Iran-downed jetliner shares its grief

Family of Canadian who died in Iran-downed jetliner shares its griefPain mixed with anger — an Iranian-Canadian student who lost his mother when Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner with 57 Canadian nationals onboard shares his grief. “Once you start to cope with the sorrow a little bit, then came the tragic news that it was downed by a missile, and it was almost as if she died again,” Amirali Alavi told AFP. “Thinking how it could have been avoided, how somebody’s responsible for it,” the 27-year-old Toronto law student said it made him furious and inconsolable.
