Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi, 63, is confirmed dead after ‘no sign of life’ was found at helicopter crash site – as drone footage shows aircraft slammed into mountainside

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi was killed after a helicopter carrying him and other officials crashed in the mountainous northwest reaches of Iran on Sunday.

Raisi, 63, was confirmed dead by Iranian media today along with Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian, Governor of Eastern Azerbaijan province Malek Rahmati and Tabriz’s Friday prayer Imam Mohammad Ali Alehashem.

Two pilots and three other Iranian officials and security guards also perished in the crash.

Grainy drone footage from Iranian and Turkish news agencies showed how the helicopter had smashed apart on landing, and an Iranian official said the search teams who located the wreckage found ‘no sign of life’.

Footage shared by the Iranian Red Crescent later this morning showed solemn rescuers carrying corpses on covered stretchers as they made their way through the forest from the crash site.

The nation’s government held an ‘urgent meeting’ this morning, with Raisi’s chair left vacant and covered in a black sash.

According to Iran’s constitution, a new presidential election will need to be called within 50 days.

But Raisi’s death is sure to trigger a power struggle, with a variety of ambitious candidates now set to vie for power.
