Cargo plane crashes in Iran with 10 onboard

Cargo plane crashes in Iran with 10 onboard

The plane had been scheduled to land at the nearby Payam International Airport, about 25 miles west of the capital.

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

Some Iranian media reports said 10 people were on board and that there were no survivors. State TV said rescue teams had been sent to the area, between the airports of Fath and Payam. A spokesman for Iran's civil aviation told state TV that the plane belonged to Kyrgyzstan.

The charred remains of a plane's fuselage with Iranian Air Force colours, its nose wedged through the wall of what appeared to be a house, were seen in photographs obtained by AFP.

Meanwhile, Jessica Proud, spokeswoman for the New York State GOP, said: "Hypocrisy at its finest". Last month, she announced that she would pay her congressional interns at least $15 per hour .

The plane - which was carrying meat - had set off from Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, and was heading for the global commercial airport in Payam, west of Tehran. The four-engine, narrow-body aircraft were built until 1979.

Saha Airlines' Boeing 707s suffered a previous fatal crash in April 2005, when a flight coming from the Kish island crash-landed at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, killing three passengers.

Ten people are feared dead following the crash.

Fath Airport belongs to Iran's powerful paramilitary Revolutionary Guard.
