The Antonov aircraft came down at a sports complex west of Tehran minutes after the pilot reported a technical problem. It remains unclear what caused the crash.


The plane was reportedly en route from Armenia to a city in the United Arab Emirates.


Earlier reports said the plane might have been of Russian or Bulgarian origin.
