Rescuers struggle to find helicopter carrying Iranian president

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi crashed in foggy weather Sunday, according to state-run media, which said Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and other officials were also on board. Their condition is not yet known, and the helicopter has not been found.

The helicopter was one of three traveling in Iran's East Azerbaijan province as the president returned from a visit to Azerbaijan. At least 40 rescue teams were heading to the area, but crews struggled because of the mountainous terrain and poor visibility, according to state media. Video broadcast on state television showed rescue teams in vehicles and on foot in dense fog.
