Iranian military plane crashes into 10-story building in Tehran

An Iranian military transport plane with 94 people on board crashed into a 10-story building in the suburbs of the capital Tehran on Tuesday, state television reported. "The building is on fire now," the television said, adding that fire-fighters were trying to save people trapped inside the building in the Azari residential district. The C-130 aircraft hit the building while coming in to land at Tehran's Mehrabad airport, state television reported. The plane, which belonged to the Army's air force, was carrying 84 passengers and 10 crew, the television reported. It was not immediately clear if there were any survivors.

It crashed due to a technical failure as it was trying to make an emergency landing, the television said. The plane crashed into the Towhid residential complex. It had taken off from Mehrabad airport and was heading to Bandar Abbas, a port city in southern Iran, reports the AP. I.L.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
