Iranian Hard-Liners Give Thanks For Crash
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Thousands of Iranian hard-liners held noon prayers and gave thanks in the desert where a U.S. military helicopter crashed in 1980 during the failed mission to free 52 Americans held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. Caught in a sandstorm, a helicopter collided with a C-130 transport plane at the ill-fated operation's desert landing spot. Eight American servicemen were killed. Iran later erected a "Mosque of Thanks" there.
