AFP , Tuesday 24 Nov 2015

Turkey on Tuesday summoned the Russian charge d'affaires to Ankara to protest violations of its air space on the Syrian border by a Russian war plane that was later shot down, a Turkish official said.

The envoy was summoned after the Turkish army said two Turkish F-16s shot down the plane "within the rules of engagement" after it violated Turkish airspace 10 times within a five-minute period, a foreign ministry official told AFP.
