All 170 people on board a Ukrainian passenger plane that crashed on Wednesday after taking off from Tehran were killed, Iran's Red Crescent said.

"Obviously it is impossible that passengers" on flight PS-752 "are alive", the head of Red Crescent told semi-official news agency ISNA, adding that 170 passengers and crew had boarded the plane.

The plane crashed shortly after take-off in Tehran with 170 passengers on board, Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

The Boeing 737 had left Tehran's international airport bound for Kiev, the agency said, adding that 10 ambulances were sent to the crash site.
