The black box retrieved from the crash site of a Ukrainian airliner that was shot down by mistake near Tehran last month has been noticeably damaged, the Iranian defence minister said on Wednesday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"The black box sustained noticeable damage. We asked the defence industry to assist in its reconstruction", Amir Hatami was quoted as saying by Borna, an Iranian news agency.

The Ukraine International plane with 176 passengers and crew was accidentally struck by an Iranian missile in January. Everyone aboard was killed, many of them Iranians and Canadians.
