  • 15 Dead After Military Cargo Plane Crashes In Iran

Up to 15 are feared dead after a cargo plane "landed at the wrong airport" amid severe weather in Iran and crashed into a residential building before exploding. Authorities did not immediately offer a reason for the mistake, though they said the Iranian crew had declared an emergency prior to landing.

The plane's engines and wheels are spread across the crash site and images from inside the plane's hull show it is completely charred.

"We don't have clear information about the details of the crash", said the head of Iran's emergency department, Pir Hossein Koolivand.

TV said rescue teams had been sent to the area, between the airports of Fath and Payam.

The big jet, operated by the Iranian Air Force, exploded into flames after crashing into houses near the capital of Tehran.
