Engine failure, not missile, caused crash of Ukrainian airliner in Iran: Ukrainian embassy

KIEV, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Engine failure caused the crash of a Ukrainian airliner in Iran, rather than a missile attack or act of terrorism, the Ukrainian embassy to Iran said on Wednesday, citing preliminary information.

In a statement, the embassy also said that 168 people had bought tickets for the flight.
