A TURKISH bride-to-be and her hen party group have been killed in a private jet crash in Iran.

Mina Basaran, 28, the daughter of billionaire Huseyin Basaran, was flying back with her friends to Istanbul after pre-wedding celebrations in Dubai.

The crash in the Zagros Mountains near Shahr-e Kord on Sunday killed everyone on board, all women.

Other victims included architect Zeynep Coskun, 28, and the co-pilot Melike Kuvvet, an ex-air force captain who had reportedly been dismissed from the military but hoped to be reinstated.
