Canadian prime minister has said that 138 of the passengers on board the crashed Ukrainian jet were heading to Canada.
Justin Trudeau said they were due to make connecting flights to Canada.
He made the announcement while saying he spoke to US President Donald Trump earlier.
Mr Trudeau added that it is very early days in the investigation and it is dangerous to speculate on the possible causes of the crash, which left 176 people dead outside the Iranian capital of Tehran.
Three of those who died were British.
