The wreckage of a plane that crashed in Iran on Sunday has been found, local media are reporting.
 
The Aseman Airlines passenger plane came down in the Zagros Mountains on Sunday, and all 66 people on board are feared to have been killed.
 
Heavy wind and snow forced the search and rescue teams to be called off late on Sunday but they resumed the search on Monday.
 
Officials from the region told news channels rescuers had reached the site.
 
The ATR 72-500 twin-engine turboprop was travelling from Tehran to the south-western city of Yasuj.
 
Flight EP3704 left Tehran at 04:30 GMT on Sunday, and crashed about an hour later.
 
The crash site is about 22km (14 miles) from Yasuj, Iranian media reported, in the Mount Dena area, close to the city of Semirom in Isfahan province.
 
The crashed plane was 25 years old, Iran's civil aviation organization said.
