Cargo plane crashes in Iran with 10 onboard: media

Tehran, Jan 14 (AFP) A military cargo plane crashed near the Iranian capital Tehran with 10 people onboard, state TV reported Monday.

"The plane was a cargo Boeing 707 that overshot the runway during its landing," Iran's aviation organisation spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh told state broadcaster IRIB.

Conservative news agencies Fars and Tasnim said it was a military cargo plane carrying meat from the Kyrgyzstan capital of Bishkek.

IRIB said the plane hit a building after the pilot chose the wrong runway while trying to land at Fath airport in Alborz province, just east of Tehran. (AFP) MRJ
