teheran - Wreckage pieces of a Sunday crashed Iranian plane have finally been traced in the inaccessible and snowy Zagros Mountains in southern Iran.
According to the elite corps of the armed forces, the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), the crew of a helicopter observed wreckage on Mount Dena.
Iranian media reported Tuesday that thanks to better weather conditions dozens of teams of rescue workers set to work and are on their way to the wreck. In addition, commands from the armed forces have also been deployed.
A French-Italian aircraft ATR-72 of the Iranian airline Iran Aseman Airlines was on Sunday with 66 people on a flight from Tehran to the southwestern Yasuj above the province of Isfahan disappeared. It was assumed that the aircraft had crashed in the mountains. On Monday it was reported that the wreck was seen on the mountain Dena, but that was later contradicted again. The search was seriously hindered by bad weather on Tuesday.
