At least seven people have died in a cargo plane crash near the Iranian capital, Tehran, media have reported.

The Boeing 707 reportedly hit a building while trying to land at Fath airport in Karaj, west of Tehran.

The Fars news agency said 16 people were on board and one survivor has so far been found.

The plane “overshot the runway during its landing”, Reza Jafarzadeh, a spokesman for Iran’s aviation organisation, told broadcaster IRIB.

Officials are continuing to search for bodies in the wreckage.

The cargo aircraft was transporting meat from the Kyrgyz capital, Bishkek, local agencies report.

It is not clear who owned the plane.

A spokesman for Iran’s civil aviation said the plane belonged to Kyrgyzstan, while Kyrgyzstan’s Manas airport said it was operated by Iran’s Payam Air.
