In Iran, funeral ceremonies have begun for Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, who was killed in a helicopter crash Sunday along with Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and several other Iranian officials and crew.

Thousands of mourners gathered today in the city of Tabriz for a procession. Other ceremonies are planned in the coming days, including tomorrow in Tehran. Raisi’s burial is set to take place Thursday in his home city of Mashhad. Iranian state media said the crash was caused by a “technical failure.”
