Iranian search teams on January 25 recovered eight more bodies from the site of a deadly building collapse in downtown Tehran, bringing the confirmed death toll to 15 – including 11 firefighters.
When the 17-story Plasco building caught fire and collapsed on January 19 state media initially reported that as many as 30 firefighters were killed.
Since then, Iranian officials have not given a precise casualty toll.
But at least five firefighters are still missing and presumed dead.
