Iranian agencies report "no survivors" at helicopter crash scene transporting President Ebrahim Raisi

No survivors were found at the crash site of the helicopter carrying Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi, according to reports from the Iranian state news agency IRINN and the semi-official Mehr News.

If approved by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber would be next in the line of succession.

In the Islamic Republic, the Supreme Leader holds the ultimate authority over domestic and foreign affairs, significantly surpassing the powers of the president.
