Relatives of 66 people who were on board a plane that crashed in Iran are desperately waiting for any news, as a search operation is set to resume.

The Aseman Airlines passenger plane came down in the Zagros mountains yesterday (February 18) and all those on board are feared to have been killed.

Heavy wind and snow forced rescuers to stop the search late yesterday.

The ATR 72-500 twin-engine turboprop was traveling from Tehran to the south-western city of Yasuj.

Flight EP3704 left Tehran at 04:30 GMT (local time) yesterday, and crashed about an hour later on Dena Mountain, near the city of Semirom in Isfahan province.

Foreign media reported that the crash site is about 22km from Yasuj.
