Sixty-six people are feared to have been killed in a passenger plane crash in the Zagros mountains in Iran.
The Aseman Airlines plane, en route from Tehran to the south-western city of Yasuj, came down near the city of Semirom in Isfahan province.
The Red Crescent deployed search and rescue teams to the site. The airline has retracted a statement saying definitively that all aboard were dead.
Flight EP3704 left Tehran at 04:30 GMT (local time), and crashed about an hour later.
The aircraft, a twin-engine turboprop, came down on Dena Mountain, 22km (14 miles) from Yasuj, news channel Irinn reported.
