    About 150 people are feared dead in a plane crash in north-western Iran.

    Iran state television says a Caspian Airlines Tupolev jet was heading from Tehran to the Armenian capital Yerevan when it crashed shortly before midday local time, about 120 kilometres north-west of the capital.

    Emergency service authorities have reported the plane was destroyed and shattered into pieces and the wreckage was in flames.

    "The passenger plane was completed destroyed and the wreckage was scattered everywhere," IRNA quoted Qazvin police chief Masoud Jafari Nasab as saying.

    "Most probably all passengers on board have been killed in the crash," he said, adding that the plane had crashed in farmland near the village of Janat Abad.

    Caspian Airlines is jointly owned by Russian and Iranian interests and uses Russian made aircraft.

    Iran has had a number of aviation disasters over the past decade, many of which it blames on United States sanctions preventing it from getting spare parts into the country.

    You know what, I wouldn't be surprised if this was another absolutely insane attempt to blame the west on every evil that exists in the world.

    Wow, you're a prick.

    If it was a bunch of known terrorists then I wouldn't care but it was a bunch of innocent civilians.

    Since when did I say that? :bang:

    All I did was bring up the possibility that one of the passengers may have a minuscule link to a terrorist organisation.

    Which is quite possible.

    Now, stop making shit up.

    Yes it's the US' fault that they are a police state with a long history of human rights violations, and that sensible countries do not trade openly with people who still lynch minority groups.

    So the chance of someone on board having a minuscule link to a terrorist cell is a good enough reason for the loss of 150 lives?

    Man you're digging yourself into deeper hole as you go.

    Plane crashes are getting old to be honest, lost their shock value. We need more train crashes.

    What's with all the plane crashes recently? Has an entire generation of planes suddenly become useless?

    You just forgot all the ones that happened last year, the year before last year, and the year before that. And the year before that.

    I bet the plane was actually a prisoner plane carrying key political prisoners that sparked the riots a few weeks ago.
