Ebrahim Raisi helicopter crash: Three rescue workers have gone missing in Iran. They had rushed to the spot after the helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hussein Amir Abdullahiyan crashed.

Rescue workers are facing difficulties due to dense fog and bad weather.

According to the spokesperson of the Red Crescent involved in the rescue team, three rescue workers searching for the President have gone missing.

According to the spokesperson, rescue teams have reached near the spot. According to the spokesperson, rescue work may slow down due to heavy rains and the possibility of increasing cold.

Earlier, the helicopter carrying Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi and other senior officials crashed in the northwestern part of the region on Sunday.

Raisi was returning from neighboring Azerbaijan when the incident took place.

Iran's state television has described the area of the incident as being near Jolfa, a city on the border with the nation of Azerbaijan, some 600 kilometers (375 miles) northwest of the Iranian capital, Tehran.

It is not yet known if Raisi or any other passengers in the helicopter were hurt in the incident.

Iran's interior minister says rescuers are still trying to reach the site of the incident, but their efforts are being hampered due to poor weather conditions.
