Iran finds plane wreckage and bodies after three days

Syrian President extends condolences over plane crash in Iran

"An ATR aircraft of Aseman Airlines with 60 passengers and about six crew disappeared from radar this morning", Aladin Borujerdi, head of parliaments national security and foreign policy commission, told the semi-official ISNA news agency.

State television aired footage showing the plane crash site against the side of a snow-covered mountain near Yasuj.

"Given the good weather conditions, clear skies and less wind, there is a good visibility today for continuing the search", Mojtaba Khaledi, spokesperson for the emergency services, told the official IRNA news agency. The Aseman airlines passenger plane came down in the Zagros mountains on Sunday.

Ramezan Sharif, the spokesman of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), also said IRGC helicopters found the wreckage on Tuesday morning.

The City boss even suggested Sane could have started the game, and Manchester United fans could not help but see the amusing side. And former striker Sutton has warned Manchester United that they can ill afford to lose that game against the west London side.

An IRIB reporter who spoke to one of the pilots said he had seen "scattered bodies around the plane" and that it was located in Noghol village, around 4,000 metres (13,000 feet) up Dena mountain.

A number of 26 rescue teams along with 106 climbers have been dispatched to the estimated area of the accident, while the bad weather is hampering the search efforts in the mountainous region.

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

Aseman Airlines spokesman Mohammad Taghi Tabatabai told state TV that all on board Flight EP3704 were killed.

Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson to Pistons for Willie Reed
James Ennis , who was also acquired by the Pistons, will not be available after getting stuck in bad weather today. Reed is now serving a six-game suspension without pay for a domestic violence incident that involved his wife.

Crash investigators from a French air safety agency were due to arrive in Iran on Monday.

Following the landmark 2015 nuclear accord with world powers that lifted global sanctions on Tehran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear enrichment programme, Iran is allowed to purchase airplanes and airplane parts and has made deals worth tens of billions of dollars for new aircraft.

Iran has suffered multiple aviation disasters, most recently in 2014 when 39 people were killed as a Sepahan Airlines plane crashed just after take-off from Tehran, narrowly avoiding many more deaths when it plummeted near a busy market.

However, US President Donald Trump's refusal to recertify the deal has injected uncertainty into those sales.
