Tehran, Iran, Dec. 06 – The following are photographs of scenes of a plane crash in Tehran on Tuesday.

All 94 passengers on board an Iranian military transport plane which crashed south of Tehran Tuesday afternoon have died, according to state radio which also said that at least 25 people on the ground were also killed.

The C-130 transport plane which was travelling from Tehran to the southern port city of Bandar Abbas attempted to make an emergency landing in Tehran’s Mehrabad airport but failed to do so successfully.

State television said that it crashed in Yaft-Abad, a residential district of the Iranian capital. It burst into flames at 13:45 Tehran time as it smashed into a 10-story building, which housed dozens of residential apartments.

The Fars news agency, close to the office of Iran’s Supreme Leader, put the number of passengers on board at 106, while the state-run IRNA news agency reported it at 94.
