A passenger plane has crashed into a residential area in Tehran, killing 39 people and injuring nine.
The aircraft went down near Tehran's Mehrabad International Airport after its engine went out shortly after take-off.
Crowds in the Azadi neighbourhood gathered round the remains of the airline after it hit a wall and trees, close to a market.
Its tail fin, bearing Sepahan's dolphin logo, was torn from the fuselage and landed in the middle of a street.
Iranian Revolutionary Guards cordoned off the wreckage and debris scattered across the road.
There have been several plane crashes in Iran which have been blamed on its ageing aircraft and poor maintenance.
