Iran’s President Helicopter Crashes, Fate Unknown

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has crashed while visiting neighboring Azerbaijan, Iran’s semi-official Tasnim News Agency disclosed.

“Some of the president’s companions on this helicopter were able to communicate with Central Headquarters, raising hopes that the incident could have ended without casualties,” it added.

It is unclear what the exact status is of Raisi’s helicopter.

It was said that the helicopter was part of a convoy of three helicopters. Two of those helicopters were carrying ministers and officials who arrived at their destination safely, according to Tasnim.

“Seyyed Mohammad-Ali Al-Hashem, Tabriz’s Friday Prayer Imam, and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were also reportedly on the helicopter with the president,” Tasnim said on X.
