Tehran, Dec 6 - An Iranian C-130 military cargo plane crashed down minutes before touchdown in a populated residential area in South Tehran on Tuesday.

The military aircraft carrying 90 people smashed into a 10-storey building.

ISNA said the aircraft burst into flames.

A number of helicopters have joined the rescue efforts, as fire caused by the crash was hampering the operation.

At least ten bodies have been found so far.
