Iran plane crash: 66 people on board Aseman Airlines flight to Yasuj

Fog prevents helicopters from getting to the crash site and it is so far unclear whether anyone has managed to survive.

A plane has crashed in southern Iran with 66 people on board, according to a spokesman for Aseman Airlines.

The 24-year-old ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop, left the Iranian capital Tehran at around 8am local time and crashed about an hour later.

The plane went down near the remote mountain town of Semirom, about 390 miles south of Tehran.

It had been heading to the southern city of Yasuj, in Isfahan province.

Aseman Airlines spokesman Mohammad Taghi Tabatabai said there had been 60 passengers on board, including one child, and six crew.

He added: "After searches in the area, unfortunately we were informed that the plane crashed.

"Unfortunately, all our dear ones lost their lives in this incident."
