Presidente do Irão Ebrahim Raisi vítima de queda de helicóptero

By Ninian Carter

May 20, 2024 - O Presidente do Irão Ebrahim Raisi, o ministro dos Negócios Estrangeiros e outros responsáveis morreram quando o seu helicóptero se despenhou com mau tempo após uma visita a uma nova barragem na fronteira com o Azerbaijão.

Iran’s hardliner President Ebrahim Raisi was killed on Sunday after his helicopter crashed during poor weather in mountains near the Azerbaijan border.

Following an overnight search, the charred wreckage of the U.S.-made Bell 212 helicopter, which had been carrying Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and six other passengers and crew, was found early on Monday.

The crash comes amid growing dissent within Iran over a number of political and social crises.
