Turkish plane crashes in Iran

BREAKING: Turkish plane crashes in Iran on way to Istanbul, leaving 11 dead

The Turkish private plane carrying 11 people crashed in Iran while flying 28-year-old heiress Mina Basaran and seven of her friends from her hen party. "The Iranian authorities will investigate this air accident and we will provide our support for the investigation as much as possible", the UAE authority said in a statement, "The GCAA extends its honest condolences to the families of the victims".

Other Iranian media said the plane went down in a remote mountain in the snow-capped Zagros range during bad weather.

According to Iran's Fars news agency, the plane bound from Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul disappeared from radars shortly after it had entered Iran's airspace to crash near the town of Shahr-e-Kord in the Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province.

There are no clear reasons for the crash until official investigations by the Iranian and Turkish authorities are completed.

The locals reached the wreckage of crashed plane late evening on Sunday and encountered the corps which are not identifiable and need DNA examination, the spokesman for the organization said.

Shahr-e Kord is some 230 miles (370 kilometres) south of the capital, Tehran. Turkey's Transport Ministry said the aircraft belonged to a company named Basaran Holding, which The Associated Press could not immediately reach.

Among those photographs was an image of the plane posted three days ago.

The last videos posted to her account showed her enjoying a concert by the British pop star Rita Ora at a popular Dubai nightclub. The firm owns hotels and is also active in the energy, construction and tourism sectors.

There was no further activity on her account after that.

The Turkish plane crashed in southwest Iran on Sunday while taking the daughter of a top businessman and her friends back home to Turkey from a celebration in the UAE.
