An Iranian air force helicopter crashed Wednesday, killing all 10 people on board, according to the semiofficial Fars News Agency.
"The helicopter was carrying five people who had been injured earlier in a road accident, as well as four crew members and one medic," a medical official was quoted as saying.
The five passengers worked for the Ministry of Education, another official said.
The crash took place near a hospital in the holy city of Mashad.

I wish you people would get off of the "holy" city thing,...Holy city of this and the Holy city of that......Just give the name of the city. Who the hell cares if it is a holy city or not. Don't see too much Holiness in these cities where tribes are killing each other all the time.
