World

A cargo plane crashed into a residential complex near the capital of Iran in Tehran with 10 people on board, state TV reported Monday.

“The plane was a cargo Boeing 707 that overshot the runway during its landing,” Iran’s aviation organisation spokesperson Reza Jafarzadeh told state broadcaster IRIB.

According to Conservative news agencies Fars and Tasnim, 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 attempting to land at Fath airport in Alborz province, just east of Tehran.
