Baku, December 27, AZERTAC

At least 10 people have been killed in a series of avalanches amid heavy snow in the mountains north of Iran's capital Tehran.

The Iranian Red Crescent confirmed on Sunday that the bodies of 10 climbers had been found in the heights of the Elburz Mountains north of Tehran in the past four days. It cannot be ruled out that there are more bodies under the snow.

The Red Crescent will continue its rescue work on Sunday, the Isna news agency reported.
