••Search Efforts Ongoing


A helicopter carrying Iranian President, Ebrahim Raisi, and Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, crashed on Sunday, according to state media and the country’s mission to the United Nations, UN but has yet to be found by search-and-rescue workers because of heavy fog.

The state news agency IRNA reported that an enormous search operation involving 16 teams was underway to locate the helicopter.

Inclement weather is hampering the effort. The teams had yet to locate the crash site after almost five hours.

State media has yet to report on casualties or confirm the whereabouts or condition of the President. The cause of the crash is also unknown.

Earlier reports indicated that one of the three helicopters in a convoy carrying the Iranian President was involved in an accident.
