Russia has said Syria shot down one of its military planes – but has blamed Irael for the deaths of the 15 people on board.
Russia's defence ministry said Israeli jets put the Il-20 plane into the path of Syrian air defence systems on Monday after failing to give Moscow enough notice of a strike on Syrian targets.

The aircraft disappeared off the radar about 23:00 local time (20:00 GMT).
The IDF said it had followed well-established protocols in communicating with Moscow that are intended to prevent such incidents.
