Iran search and rescue teams for a plane crash were hampered by bad weather yesterday. The plane was carrying 65 passengers and crew. Local officials dispatched helicopters twice to locate the crash site. They were turned back due to bad weather, an official said. State TV reported that Iranian officials have been in touch with France-based ATR to have a company representative come to Iran. But the weather forecasters did not expect better conditions until Monday morning.
