15 Dead After Military Cargo Plane Crashes In Iran

Authorities did not immediately offer a reason for the crew's decision to land there, though they said the crew had declared an emergency prior to land.

The incident occurred close to Fath airport west of the capital, Tehran, on Monday, the semi-official news agency said.

It is not clear who owned the plane.

Air ambulances and firefighters were sent to the scene between Fath and Payam airports.

Rescuers say the bodies of seven people have been recovered with searches continuing.

State broadcaster IRIB earlier said there were 10 people on the plane, without confirming any casualties.

South Africa vs Pakistan, 3rd Test
Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan were the pick of the Pakistan bowlers in the second innings as they bagged three wickets apiece. His total of ten dismissals in the match was one better than the record previously shared by Rashid Latif and Kamran Akmal.

The report said that the plane hit a building near the airport after the pilot lost control of the aircraft and ran out of space to land.

Iran's air force said in a statement that the fate of the crew, including their possible "martyrdom", is under investigation.

But a source told Fars agency that the plane belonged to the Iranian military's air force.

The plane's engines and wheels are spread across the crash site and images from inside the plane's hull show it is completely charred.

The Iranian air force does operate Boeing 707s and it also has a civilian airline, SAHA.
