The Iranian plane crashed on Sunday is found in the mountains, but the civil aviation authority denies the authorization of the report.

The Aseman Airlines passenger plane is examined to cross down at Zagros Mountains on Sunday and all the board of 66 people are feared to be killed on the incident.

Heavy wind and snow forced search and rescue teams to stop work on Sunday but they resumed the search on Monday.

The officials from the place informed news channels that rescuers had reached the site for the inspection of the sites.

Both channels – IRINN and English-language Press TV – also said they could not confirm the reports independently.

Flight EP3704 left Tehran at 04:30 GMT on Sunday, and crashed about an hour later.

The crash site is about 22km (14 miles) from Yasuj, Iranian media reported, in the Mount Dena area, close to the city of Semirom in Isfahan province.

The crashed plane was 25 years old, Iran’s civil aviation organisation said.

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