Syria warns against action over Turkish plane

Teams continue efforts to search for wreckage and two missing airmen - four days after Syria shot down a Turkish warplane over the Mediterranean. Turkish officials said on Friday that a jet briefly went into Syrian airspace by mistake - before Syria shot the plane down after it had re-entered international air space. Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan held a cabinet meeting in Ankara to discuss what Turkey says was an unprovoked attack. A Turkish government spokesman said the downing of the jet will not go "unpunished." Syria - said it shot down the plane in self-defense - and warned Turkey - and its NATO allies - against retaliation. Syria's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Juhad Makdissi.

If their meeting is for hostile reasons, Syrian land, air and water are sacred to the Syrian army." Turkey has called for a NATO meeting on Tuesday - and says it will also go to the United Nations Security Council. Sarah Irwin, Reuters.
