“A rocket strike, possibly a Tor missile system, is among the main working theories, since there is information on the internet about elements of a missile being found near the site of the crash,” he said. The British government said it was looking into “concerning” reports that the jet, which crashed on Wednesday, killing 176 people, may have been shot down. Briefing journalists following a call between prime minister Boris Johnson and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, a spokesman called for a “credible and transparent investigation into what happened”. “The absence of communications with air-traffic control and absence of fire means you can’t exclude the possibility of a terrorist attack, drone collision or missile strike,” the source is quoted as saying.
