Fifteen people have been killed when a military cargo plane crashed as it slid out of a runway and burst into flames during an emergency landing, an army statement said Monday.

A military spokesman told state television that the plane was loaded with meat from Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan, when it crashed near Tehran, adding that the flight engineer had only escaped death.
