There are apparently no survivors in the accident

Aeronautics security investigator Todd Curtis told the BBC that the flying machine associated with the accident had been fabricated in 2016 and conveyed new to the carrier.
“The plane was vigorously divided which implies either there was an extraordinary effect on the ground or something occurred in the sky,” he said.
“From all appearances this was a plane that had been appropriately thought about and there were no extraordinary issues as for European specialists or American specialists so now there is nothing that focuses to a specific reason.”
Mr Curtis said Iranian, Ukrainian, US and French specialists would all be associated with the examination, yet it was indistinct how they would cooperate. Iran is right now under US authorizations and there are extreme strains between the two nations.
“They will begin assembling the narrative of what occurred on that plane… t to check whether there is something in particular about the state of the airplane or the fuel on board that may have prompted this,” he said.
“And furthermore one can’t limit the likelihood that something outside the flying machine, a mid-air impact or some other issue, may have been included.”
