A Dubai-based aircraft en route from Afghanistan heading for Dubai and carrying 100 Americans was forced to land in Iran after it was told it would not be able to fly over Iran because of a problem with the flight plan that was completed before the flight took off.

The Fly Dubai plane was chartered by the US Pentagon to fly from US Bagram Air Field, and officials say it should be able to take off soon.

There may also have been 2 Canadians onboard.

UPDATE: The plane was allowed to leave Iran and just landed in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
