Drone footage has been released showing the wreckage of the helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

Iranian state news agency IRNA’s social media channels released the drone footage on Monday (May 20).

The footage, shot by the Red Crescent, appears to show the tail of a helicopter next to a large patch of scorched earth on a hillside littered with debris.

Rescuers have said there is no sign of life at the crash site.

Earlier, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi was killed in a helicopter crash after a huge rescue effort was launched to find the 63-year-old and others on board. The helicopter carrying him and the country’s foreign minister crashed as it was crossing mountainous terrain in the northwest reaches of Iran on Sunday (May 19).
