Witnesses said the plane crashed in a mountainous area and caught fire, Iran's Mehr News Agency reported.

Iranian officials said the plane took off from Sharjah International Airport on its way to Istanbul. Turkey's Transport Ministry said the plane belongs to a company named Başaran Holding.

Among the last photographs posted by Başaran was an image of the crashed plane posted three days ago.
