A bride-to-be and her closest friends were all killed when their private jet smashed into a mountain in Iran. Mina Basaran, 28, the daughter of Turkish businessman Huseyin, was flying to Istanbul with her seven pals following a bash in Dubai when the plane plummeted to the ground yesterday.
All 11 people on board the plane were killed, authorities said. The socialite, who amassed more than 75,000 followers on Instagram and was featured in Grazia magazine, was set to tie the knot next month. In her last Insta post, Ms Barasan was surrounded by her mates at the luxury hotel, the One and Only Royal Mirage. The image was liked more than 30,000 times.
The head of the Turkish Red Crescent, Keres Kinik, said the bodies would be taken down from the crash site in the morning. He added: “The wreck of the jet and the bodies are found. They will be carried down from the mountain when the sun comes up. My condolences to those who lost their loved ones.”
