Recommended Posts


Tehran, Iran (CNN) -- Seventy-two people died and 33 were injured Sunday night when an IranAir passenger jet en route from Tehran to the northwest city of Orumiyeh crashed as it attempted to make an emergency landing in a snowy field, an official said.

In all, 105 people -- 93 passengers and 12 crew members -- were aboard the Boeing 727, West Azerbaijan's coroner told the semi-official Fars News Agency.

Severe weather at the site was making rescue operations difficult, the coroner, told the news agency.

All members of the crew were killed, according to the semi-official Mehr News Agency.
