15 Killed as Cargo Plane Crashes in Iran

Alwaght- Fifteen people have been killed after a Boeing 707 air force cargo plane with 16 people on board has crashed in Iran's Alborz province after it overshot the runway during landing.

The cargo plane was flying from the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan crashed and caught fire near the city of Karaj on Monday morning while attempting to land in the wrong airport.

"A (Boeing) cargo 707 place carrying meat took off from Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan and had an emergency landing at Fath airport this morning," the Iranian Army said in a statement on its website.

The head of Iran's emergency department, Pirhossein Kolivand, said the bodies of 15 people had been found. One crew member is reported to have survived the crash and is now receiving treatment in hospital.

Iranian news agencies say it was a military cargo plane carrying meat from Kyrgyzstan's capital of Bishkek.

Initial reports suggested that the plane was due to arrive at Karaj's Payam Airport but the pilot took the plane to the Fath airfield by mistake, which is not suited for large cargo aircraft.

The pilot then lost control of the plane, ran out of the runway and hit the walls that separate the airport from neighboring residential areas. There were reports of damage to some residential facilities as well.

Reza Jafarzadeh, a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran (CAO.IRI), told Tasnim news agency that the plane had "caught fire" but the extent of damage was not clear.
