  • Private plane flying to Turkey crashes in Iran with 11 on board

Mojtaba Khaledi, the spokesman of the National Disaster Management Organization of Iran, said the plane hit a mountain near Shahrekord and burst into flames.

A statement by Turkey's Armed Forces confirmed that a plane had been sent to the crash site to help remove the wreckage, a Turkish army spokesperson told CNN.

It said the eight passengers on board were six Turks and two Spaniards.

The Turkish state-owned news agency Anadolu said the Canadair CL604 business jet crashed shortly after calling to report an unspecified "technical failure", according to the Turkish Ministry of Transport.

The flight took off Sunday from Sharjah International Airport in the UAE, home to the low-priced carrier Air Arabia.

Data from the FlightRadar24 website shows that about 80 minutes after taking off the jet rapidly gained altitude and then dropped more than 3,050m (10,000ft) before disappearing off the radar.

Turkish media has said the eight passengers were Mina Basaran, the daughter of a leading Turkish businessman, and her seven friends who had spent the past days in the UAE to celebrate her marriage.

In one of the pictures, Mina poses on tarmac by the private jet, carrying flowers and wearing a denim jacket with the words "Mrs Bride" written on it.
