Rescue helicopter crashes in Iran

News.com, Australia
From correspondents in Chalous, Iran
May 30, 2004

A HELICOPTER flying a provincial governor and three of his aides from the site of an earthquake that killed at least 35 people crashed in the mountains of northern Iran today, killing all on board, official Tehran television reported.

Earlier reports said army helicopters were ferrying rescue teams into mountain villages in northern and central Iran that were cut off by landslides caused by the quake.

The television report said the governor of Qazvin province was in the crashed helicopter with three aides and a journalist from the state-run television. The report did not name any of the officials, but the governor is Masoud Emami.

Twenty aftershocks were reported after yesterday afternoon's quake, including one 4.6-magnitude temblor this morning in the southeastern city of Bam that state-run Tehran television said caused "some damage but no casualties". In Bam last December, 26,000 people died in a magnitude-6.6 quake.
