Iran investigators: Crashed jetliner never called for help

By The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran investigators says crew of Ukrainian jetliner that crashed never made a radio call for help and were trying to turn back to the airport when the plane went down.

Iran's civil aviation authority made the comments in a preliminary crash report issued Thursday.

The crash of the Ukrainian jetliner Wednesday killed 176 people.
