A plane has crashed in northern Iran, killing all 168 passengers and crew on board. The plane scattered smoking wreckage across a wide area in Qazvin province, about 75 miles (120km) north west of the capital, Tehran.
The Caspian Airlines plane was flying from the Iranian capital to Yerevan, in Armenia. The passengers were reported to be mainly Iranians from Armenian backgrounds, with five Armenian citizens and two Georgians.
Rescuers said the wreckage from the Tupolev plane was scattered up to 200m from the crash site. Only a large chunk of wing appeared to have survived intact. Much of the plane was reduced to small shards of metal.
Iranian media reports said the plane's tail - part of which is seen here - was on fire before the plane crashed.
The plane hit the ground with such force that it carved a crater into the ground. It was reported to have crashed just 16 minutes after it took off from Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport.
Iran is home to some 100,000 ethnic Armenians, many of whom frequently fly to Yerevan to visit relatives.
