Turkish Business Jet Crashes in Iran

Mina Basaran who was an Instagram personality had around 60,000 followers and was posting media from her trip to the UAE

Between 11 to 20 people were onboard the aircraft, the ISNA News agency reported citing sources in rescue services.

All 11 people on board a Turkish plane that crashed in western Iran have been killed, Iranian media report.

In a Sunday statement, Qassemi said a number of relief teams rushed to the site of the plane crash despite severe climate of the region for closely monitoring the situation and providing relief aid.

Iranian state television quoted Mojtaba Khaledi, the spokesman of the country's emergency management organisation, as saying the plane hit a mountain in Shahr-e Kord and burst into flames.

The head of Iran's Red Crescent, Morteza Salimi, told state television that two helicopters would fly to the area on Monday morning "to search for the plane's debris and bodies" - indicating there could be no survivors.

The three crew members as well as the eight passengers on board were also identified as female.

Images on social media showed a large plume of black smoke emerging from the Zagros Mountains near Shahr-e Kord in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province.

Witnesses in a village near the crash claim they saw flames coming from the plane's engine before it crashed, according to Iranian news agency Fars. Officials at the airport did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The plane was seen catching fire in the air, before it crashed into the heights of Helen Mountain near Dorak Anari village, Xinhua reported.
