German flight to Tehran turns around
The aircraft will return to Frankfurt airport, the airline said. “The background to this is a changed assessment of the security situation for the airspace around Tehran Airport.” It is unclear whether US/Canada passengers are also on board.

Trump confirmed Thursday coverage in American media. Officials in the White House think that Iran accidentally hit the device through a defense system Wednesday morning.
