At least 15 killed in a plane crash in Iran

At least 15 people were killed in a plane crash in Iran. A Boeing 707 military cargo plane crashed in bad weather on Monday west of the Iranian capital, the Iranian army said.

A flight engineer survived and was taken to hospital. The aircraft’s black box - a cockpit voice recorder (CVR) - had been recovered at the crash site.
The plane went down near Fath airport, which belongs to Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps and is located near Karaj in the central Iranian province of Alborz.
