TEHRAN (Reuters) May 15 - Tehran airport technicians found the frozen body of an Iranian man who apparently died last week while hiding in the undercarriage of a plane bound for Cyprus and Norway, a local newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The Iran daily said technicians found the body of a man in his twenties lodged above the wheels of the Iran Air Boeing 747 on Sunday after it had returned to Tehran.

They found his watch set to Iranian time and 3,000 rials (37 cents) stuffed in his sock leading them to believe he had been there since the plane took off for Norway, via Cyprus, on Friday.

Thousands of Iranians attempt to illegally emigrate to the West every year usually via neighboring Turkey or through the mountainous Caucasus and the Russian Federation.
