A bride-to-be and her hen party were sadly killed when their private jet crashed in an Iranian mountain range on the way home from Dubai.

Turkish Heiress and Instagram star Mina Basaran, 28, had set off for Dubai for a weekend-long hen-do with close friends. However, the plane went down as the group were returning to Istanbul, Turkey on Sunday.  

It remains unclear what caused the crash, though a witness told state television the plane was on fire before it hit the mountain. All 11 people on board the flight died.

Basaran recently posted photographs on Instagram of her hen party over the weekend, which included 7 of her closest pals.

According to reports, the guests have been identified as Zeynep Coşkun, Ayşe And, Burcu Urfalı, Aslı İzmirli, Liana Hananel, Jasmin Baruh and Sinem Akay. Several of them worked in fashion, as jewellery or clothes designers.

Mina Basaran was due to marry businessman Murat Gezer on April 14th.
