Passenger plane makes emergency landing in Ahvaz, Iran

TEHRAN, Aug. 3 (Mehr News Agency) - A Saha airline plane made an emergency landing on Monday in Ahvaz airport due to a technical problem in one of its engines.

The Boeing 707, flight number 124, with 174 passengers on board made an emergency landing 10 minutes after it took off (at 9:40 a.m. local time) from Ahvaz airport to fly to Tehran, Iranian Aviation Organization's spokesman told the Mehr News Agency.

No passenger was hurt, the spokesman added.

Iran suffered two flight disasters on July 15 and July 24.
