A Northwest Airlines DC-10 made an emergency landing in Tehran on Sunday after reporting a technical problem in its cargo section, airport officials said.
The plane was en route from Bombay, India, to Amsterdam, Netherlands, with 255 passengers and crew, according to a spokesman for the Iranian civil aviation authority. No injuries were reported.
U.S. carriers do not serve Iran because of American economic sanctions.
The airplane was expected to continue its trip after repairs, Iranian authorities said. Northwest Airlines is headquartered in Eagan, Minn.
