Up to 15 are feared dead after a cargo plane "landed at the wrong airport" amid severe weather in Iran and crashed into a residential building before exploding.

A Boeing 707 cargo plane with nine people on board crashed on Monday near Iran's Fath airport, west of the capital, Tehran, the semi-official Fars news agency reported, adding that there was no immediate information on casualties.

The Boeing 707 cargo plane that crashed in Iran on Monday belongs to Kyrgyzstan, Iranian state TV reported.

Authorities did not immediately offer a reason for the crew's decision to land there, though they said the crew had declared an emergency prior to land.
