AFP , Friday 16 Oct 2015

Russia's military on Friday said all its planes in Syria had returned safely to base and its drones were "working as normal", after Turkey said it had downed an "air vehicle" which violated its air space.

"All the Russian planes in Syria have returned to the Hmeimim air base after completing their tasks. Russian unmanned aerial vehicles monitoring the situation on the territory of Syria and carrying out air reconnaissance are working as normal," defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told Russian news agencies.
