TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - An Iranian emergency official says a crash has killed all those on board a Ukrainian commercial airliner that took off from Tehran.

The official made the comment on Wednesday morning after the crash. He said rescuers were trying to collect the dead.

The plane went down in farmland outside of Iran’s capital, Tehran. Authorities initially blamed a mechanical problem for the crash.
