A Halifax dentist and graduate students from Dalhousie University and Saint Mary’s University were among those killed when a Ukraine International Airlines plane crashed near Tehran Wednesday morning.

Student Masoumeh Ghavi, 30, who many knew as Masi, had been on holiday visiting family in Iran. She was travelling back to Canada with her younger sister, Mandieh Ghavi, 20, who was to study in Halifax, said Ali Nafarieh, president of the Iranian Cultural Association of Nova Scotia.

“It’s unbelievable, still I cannot believe it,” he said. “When I put myself in her family’s shoes, oh my God.”
