Iranian President, Raisi Missing After Helicopter Crashes

Iranian President, Ebrahim Raisi has been confirmed missing after the helicopter carrying him landed abnormally on Sunday.

According to State Media, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian was also on the trip with others in the same helicopter.

The Interior Minister said rescuers were still trying to reach the site due to the difficult weather conditions.

The condition of those on board the helicopter remains unknown for now, with reports that no contact has yet been made.

President Raisi was heading to the city of Tabriz, in the north west of Iran, after returning from the border with Azerbaijan, where he opened the Qiz Qalasi and Khodaafarin dams, a local source said.

A reporter with Fars news agency said heavy fog is making the search difficult at the site where it is thought that the helicopter may have landed.

He also stated that the visibility in the mountainous and wooded area was down to only about five meters.
