>> One day after a fatal airline crash in central Iran, the wreckage has finally been found. Iranian State TV say the debris was located near Dengezlu City in the province of Isfahan. The Aseman Airlines' plane was en route from Tehran to the southwest city of Yasuj when it came down on Sunday.
The rescue search had been hampered by bad weather conditions in this mountainous region, making access to local towns increasingly difficult. It's thought all 65 passengers and crew on board perished. The twin engine turboprop ATR 72 was just over 24 years old. And was back in service after being in storage for six years.
The cause of the accident is not yet known. Iran has suffered several plane crashes in the past few decades. Tehran says US sanctions prevented it from importing new aircraft or spare parts.
