TALLINN – Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid extended her condolences to the next of kin and loved ones of the victims of an Ukrainian passenger plane crash in Iran.

"Sad news to wake up to," Kaljulaid wrote on Facebook on Wednesday. "My thoughts are with the families and close ones of everyone on board the Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752," the president added.

All 176 people on board a flight to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv were killed when the plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Tehran's international airport.
