Skip to comments.San Diego College Student Among 176 Killed in Iran Plane Crash

Sara Saadat was a psychology student at Alliant International University in Scripps Ranch, the school said. She was returning from a visit with family in Iran when Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 crashed near the Iranian capital Tehran.
Alliant is a for-profit college with six campuses across California, with San Diego being the main one. The school said it will have support counselors available at the Scripps Ranch campus when spring classes resume next week.
On Thursday, officials in the U.S., Canada and Britain said their intelligence indicated it was "highly likely" the plane was unintentionally shot down by an Iranian missile late Tuesday, killing all 176 people on board.

Shot down by jihadis in her prime.
I think we need to find out who else was on that plane.
a lot of Freepers added the nationalities on the “manifest” and it’s not even half of the full list. Meaning there’s more.
A for profit college selling student visas?
Did crash sure..After it was shot down.
TCN on a student visa goes home and oh well. Happens when you visit family and your actual home is in a terrorist laden nation. Might have stopped her form doing a Jihad bombing over here. At least we don’t have to use taxpayer money to pay her tuition anymore.
“Shot down by jihadis in her prime.”
She gave her life for Jihad. What BRAVERY!
Oh, headline made it sound like an American was killed.
One does have to wonder why so many Canadians were on this plane. Europe is much closer and has far more populace, so if they were trafficking around the sanctions, one would have expected mostly EU people (other than Ukrainians), would have been on it.
Those “Canadians” were actually Iranians with Canadian citizenship.

She was from Edmonton, Canada. Her mother and sister, also from Canada, were on the plane with her. There are a lot of Iranian people here in SoCal, and most that I have met are pretty pro USA and anti Mullah. She was visiting family, and that may be grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, etc. Who knows. But I doubt they were there to protest Trump or support the mullahs.
I have family in the SF Bay Area, a cesspool of leftist, socialist, anti-American scum. I visit to see my loved ones and lifelong friends, not to support the evil regime there.
Any American who goes to that horrific country, other than on a national security mandated mission, is applying for a place in the Darwin Award competition.
I worked with a Persian woman in Sacramento circa 1979-93. She went to Teheran every Christmas to see her family. Never had a problem.
You can fly directly between Europe and Tehran. I'm sure many fly to Tehran via Paris, Rome, etc, but those are the folks that can afford it. Apparently, this flight via Kiev was by far the cheapest option to get from Canada to Iran. I suspect that's why so many are college students, who are typically broke...
I get that. And the Ukrainian airline has great reviews and excellent safety (providing Iran isn’t shooting their planes down), and, being non-Western, has Flight Attendants who don’t have to walk through the aisles sideways (to say the least!).
But the proportion of Canadians are still very odd, at least to me...perhaps Blackface is loading up their country with more Iranians than I’d imagine.
Was Sara Saadat a ‘U.S. person’ or an Iranian?
She was murdered by Iran.
“Oh, headline made it sound like an American was killed.”
And I wonder how many of the 60 some odd “Canadians” were actually Canadians.
Crashed, after some people did something.
