BEIJING, June 3 (Xinhuanet) -- A heavy dust storm has roared into Iran’s capital Tehran, killing five people and injuring 30.

Iran state television reported that the storm struck Tehran with winds of 110 to 130 kilometers per hour.

The report said the storm broke trees and plunged the capital into darkness for several minutes.

It also caused a chain-reaction crash on a highway south of the capital with 20 vehicles.

Air traffic controllers diverted several domestic flights to central Iran and cancelled some international flights.

Authorities warned people to remain indoors.
