I have my suspicions, about why plane crashed: Trump amid reports Iran downed plane

"I have my suspicions," Trump said. "It was flying in a pretty rough neighbourhood and somebody could have made a mistake."

Trump's remarks came as Newsweek, CBS and CNN reported that the plane had been accidentally shot down by Iranian air defence systems.

All 176 people aboard died in the crash near Tehran on Wednesday.

"Some people say it was mechanical. I personally don't think that's even a question," Trump said, adding that "something very terrible happened."
