- Iranian search teams found the wreckage on Tuesday of a plane that went missing in the Zagros mountains two days earlier with 66 people on board, a spokesman said.
Aseman Airlines flight EP3704 disappeared from radar as it flew over the Zagros range on Sunday morning, around 45 minutes after taking off from Tehran. After two days of heavy snow and fog, the weather finally cleared on Tuesday morning, giving helicopter teams better visibility.
"The Revolutionary Guards' helicopters this morning found the wreckage of the plane on Dena mountain," spokesman Ramezan Sharif told state broadcaster IRIB. Footage from the helicopter showed a glimpse of the wreckage in deep snow high up on Dena mountain which forms part of the Zagros range.
A pilot told IRIB he had seen "scattered bodies around the plane" and that it was located in Noghol village, at around 4,000 metres (13,000 feet).
