A Helicopter which clashed in the mountains and forest region of Iran has claimed the lives of its President Ebrahim Raisi and the country’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and other officials in the flight.

Reports revealed that a total of nine persons, including a provincial governor, were on board when the aircraft went down in northern Iran’s East Azerbaijan province and are all believed to be dead.

Aljazeera also reports that the Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, said announced a one day of mourning within  the flag would fly at half-mast as a mark of respect for Raisi and his companions.

In a post on X, Sharif called Raisi and Amirabdollahian “good friends of Pakistan” and extended his “deepest condolences and sympathies to the Iranian nation on this terrible loss”.

“The great Iranian nation will overcome this tragedy with customary courage,” he added.

The helicopter crashed on Saturday and the search was hampered by severe fog and rain near the crash site, in the Dizmar forest, nestled between the cities of Varzaqan and Jolfa in Iran’s East Azerbaijan province.

Paul Beaver, an aviation expert and former helicopter pilot, said the cloud cover, fog, mist and low temperature must have contributed to the crash of the aircraft.
