The plane, a US-made Boeing 737, went down minutes after takeoff from Tehran, and shortly after Iran had fired missiles at military bases in Iraq housing US troops.

"The NTSB has designated an accredited representative to the investigation of the crash," said the US agency which probes transport accidents.
