TEHRAN: Eleven women were killed when a private plane crashed in Iran while flying the daughter of a prominent Turkish businessman and her friends back from a hen party, officials and media reports said yesterday, reports AFP.

The Bombardier Challenger 604, carrying Mina Basaran and seven of her friends back from the United Arab Emirates, went down in southwestern Iran on Sunday en route from Sharjah to Istanbul. Three crew, all women, were also on board.

Iran’s Civil Aviation Organisation said the plane crashed at 6:09 pm (1439 GMT) on Sunday after the pilot had asked to descend due to a “technical problem”.

The business jet went down in the Zargos mountains, about 400 kilometres (250 miles) south of Tehran.

The aviation agency said six of the eight passengers were Turkish citizens and the other two Spanish.

Iranian news agency ISNA reported that the bodies of all 11 on board had been found by rescue teams. The remains were being brought down from the mountainside by helicopter to the Shahr-e Kord airport in the local provincial capital.

IRNA, another Iranian news agency, reported that a group of those close to the victims had arrived at Shahr-e Kord, accompanied by a Turkish diplomat.
