11 people on board plane that crashed in Iran

Reportedly, everyone on board has died in the crash.

A private plane flying from Sharjah to Istanbul crashed in Iran on Sunday night killing 11 people, according to reports.

Civil Aviation Oganization spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh confirmed the plane crashed in a city south of the Iranian capital of Tehran.

In February, an Iranian Aseman Airlines plane crashed in the country's central Isfahan province, killing 60 passengers and six crew members on board.

He added the bodies of the plane's passengers have been burned completely and their identification will become possible only through DNA tests.

Turkish media earlier reported that Basaran's daughter and seven of her friends were returning from a hen party in Dubai.

Among those photographs was an image of the crashed plane posted three days ago.

Iranian emergency management organisation spokesperson Mojtaba Khaledi said the plane hit a mountain and burst into flames.

Villagers near the crash site said they saw flames coming from the plane's engine before the crash.

The last videos posted to her account showed her and friends enjoying a concert by the British pop star Rita Ora at a popular Dubai nightclub.

According to SCAD, a private Bombardier Challenger Turkish TC-TRB, took off at 5:16 pm local time from Sharjah International Airport en route to Istanbul Ataturk Airport and disappeared from the radar around UAE time 7:30 pm.

There was no further activity on her account after that.

She was also in line to run her father's business, Basaran Investment Holding, which is active in the food, finance, energy, construction, tourism and travel industries.
