Eleven people killed in Turkish plane crash in Iran – agency

Eight passengers and three crew members died in the crash.

All 11 people on board a private Turkish plane were presumed dead on Sunday after it crashed and burst into flames on an Iranian mountainside while bringing a wealthy businessman's daughter and her friends home from a Dubai bachelorette party.

News website asriran.com is quoting the country's Civil Aviation Organization spokesman, Reza Jafarizadeh, as saying it was a private jet that crash near Shahr-e Kord city, some 370 kilometres (230 miles) south of the capital Tehran.

At least 11 people were killed after a private Turkish aircraft crashed in southwestern Iran.

He added the bodies of the plane's passengers have been burned completely and their identification will become possible only through DNA tests.

Those on board included Basaran's daughter Mina and seven of her friends, all flying back from a party ahead of her planned wedding next month.

Witnesses said the plane crashed in a mountainous area and caught fire, Iran's Mehr News Agency reported.

The plane took off late yesterday afternoon and climbed to a cruising altitude of just over 35,000 feet. At around 6:01 p.m. (1431 GMT; 10:31 a.m. EST), something appears to have gone wrong with the flight as it rapidly gained altitude and then dropped drastically within minutes, data published by the website showed.

She was also in line to run her father's business, Basaran Investment Holding, which is active in the food, finance, energy, construction, tourism and travel industries.

Her public Instagram page showed her standing next to an aircraft with the unique tail code TC-TRB - the same as the plane that went down and images from inside the aircraft.
