A Revolutionary Guard grieves over his dead comrades as a group of rescue workers
walk by, on a moutainside in southeastern Iran where a Russian-made Ilyushin-76 troop
carrier military plane crashed killing all 302 Revolutionary Guards on board, February
20, 2003. The crash, which happened on February 19, was the worst in Iran's history,
and happened while commanders and troops from Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard were
preparing for 48 hours' leave at home. Officials blame bad weather for the crash.
