AP Turkish fighter jets shot down a Syrian warplane after it violated Turkey's airspace on Sunday, Turkey's Prime Minister said, in a move likely to ramp up tensions between the two countries already deeply at odds over Syria's civil war. A spokesman for Syria's military confirmed the incident, saying the plane was downed in Syrian airspace while attacking rebels.
