Iran jet catches fire on landing
An Iranian passenger plane with more than 100 people on board has crashed, killing at least 70 people, according to the state news agency Irna.
Thirty-two people were injured, the agency said, quoting deputy head of the Iranian Red Crescent Heidar Heidari.
The IranAir plane was flying from the capital Tehran when it came down near the north-western city of Orumiyeh - which was its final destination.
Reports said it crashed in bad weather, and snow was hampering rescue efforts.
"At least 70 people have been killed and 32 others were injured in the crash," Mr Heidari said, according to Irna.
"The death toll is expected to increase."
Sad way to start the New Year.
