Iranians pay last respects to president killed in helicopter crash

Tens of thousands of Iranians have gathered to mourn president Ebrahim Raisi and seven members of his entourage who were killed in a helicopter crash on a fog-shrouded mountainside in the northwest.

Waving Iranian flags and portraits of the late president, mourners set off from a central square in the northwestern city of Tabriz, where Raisi was headed when his helicopter crashed on Sunday.

They walk behind a vehicle carrying the coffins of Raisi and his seven aides.
