Turkish private jet crashes in SW Iran up to 11 feared dead- local media

The Turkish private plane en route from Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul crashed in southwestern Iran earlier Sunday.

"We can confirm that a Turkish private jet. while passing through our airspace disappeared from the radar and crashed near Shahr-e Kord", said Civil Aviation Organization spokesman, Reza Jafarizadeh, as cited by Asriran.

Calls to Basaran Holding's office in Istanbul went unanswered.

His daughter and seven of her friends were on board the plane and were returning from a hen party in Dubai when it crashed, Turkish media reported.

"She also posted a photo three days ago of the plane on the tarmac carrying flowers, wearing a denim jacket reading "Mrs Bride" and the hashtag "#bettertogether".

Local residents who had reached the site of the crash said there appeared to be no survivors and victims' bodies were burnt, ISNA news agency reported, quoting Mojtaba Khaledi, spokesman for Iran's emergency services.
