A Boeing Co. 737-800 passenger jet bound for Ukraine crashed shortly after takeoff in Iran, killing everyone on board.
Ukraine International Airlines said 167 passengers and nine crew members were aboard Flight 752, which crashed at 6:18 a.m. local time in Sabashahr near Tehran. Ukrainians, Iranians and Canadians were among those aboard, it said.
The head of Tehran’s Disaster Mitigation and Management Organization, Mansour Darajati, said early assessments suggest the crash was caused by a technical issue, IRNA reported. Another state-run outlet quoted an official from the Iran Civil Aviation Organization as saying the airline didn’t declare an emergency.
Television footage showed recovery efforts at the crash site, where metal and other debris was spread over a charred field. An official from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said the main priority would be identifying the people who died in the crash. The airline said it was closely cooperating with aviation authorities.
