Iran TV airs images of site of airplane crash that killed 65


Iranian state television is airing the first images of the site of an airplane crash in southern Iran that killed 65 people.

The footage aired on Tuesday shows the plane crash site against the side of a snow-covered mountain near Yasuj, some 780 kilometers, or 485 miles, south of Tehran, Iran’s capital from which the flight took off on Sunday.

The tail of the plane could be seen in the footage.

Separately, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard released a still image of the site captured by one of its drones, which it said showed corpses in the snow.

The Aseman Airlines ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional flying, went down on Sunday in foggy weather.

All on board Flight EP3704 were killed, including 59 passengers and six crew members.
